“African Liberation Day for us is only an instrument to help organize our people…”- Kwame Ture
The United States of Africa RevolutionaryParty (USARP) and other progressive/revolutionary organizations will commemorate the most important day in the lives of African people, African Liberation Day. (ALD)
The African Liberation Day 2019 Symposium, will take place
Friday May 24th, at 7 p.m., at the Pan-African Connection Bookstore, located at ., Dallas TX 75216
African Liberation Day is celebrated Memorial Day weekend Worldwide. Thousands of people hold rallies, parades, concerts, and discussions demonstrating solidarity with all oppressed peoples of the world. ALD is an opportunity to learn more about Africa’s challenges and discuss ways that we can make our contribution to liberate the continent and African people living throughout the world.
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).
Organizations are invited to give solidarity messages.
