The first is the “Declaration to the Colonial Peoples of the World, Pan African Congress, Manchester, October 15th– 21st, 1945” (Nkrumah 1973). The second significant work offering a definition of this term is Handbook of revolutionary warfare (Nkrumah 1969). 32 KWAME NKRUMAH’S CONTRIBUTION To Nkrumah, the African Personality and the African Genius served as progeny and progenitors to the Pan-African movement, which he adjoined to socialism.

After all, what we went through was a socialist effort to arrive at socialism without a revolution. Apologies are an attitude characteristic of British liberalism.
