About ALD

ALD was founded in 1958 when Kwame Nkrumah convened the First Conference of Independent States held in Accra, Ghana and attended by eight independent African states. At this historic meeting the 15th of April was declared "African Freedom Day", to mark each year the onward progress of liberation movement, and to symbolize the determination of the people of Africa to free themselves from foreign domination and exploitation.

On May 25, 1963, leaders of thirty-two independent African States met to form the Organization of African Unity (OAU). By then more than two thirds of the continent had achieved independence from colonial rule. At this historic meeting the date of Africa Freedom Day was changed from April 15th to May 25th and Africa Freedom Day was declared African Liberation Day (ALD).
