Call for Papers & Expression of Interest – All African Peoples Conference
The Institute of African Studies, University of Ghana, is pleased to announce the celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the All African Peoples Conference (AAPC), and to issue this call for participation in the commemorative events. Hosted by Ghana in 1958, the first AAPC served as the rallying point for mobilizing ordinary Africans in the decisive struggles for liberation across the continent and beyond.
The conference, attended by over 300 hundred delegates representing political parties, civil society groups, trade unions and other working people’s organizations from the continent and the Diaspora, as well as observers from Europe, North America and China, was a precursor to the Organization of African Unity (OAU) and played an instrumental role in the final onslaught on colonial rule
