Inheriting and Continuing the Revolutionary Theory and Practice of Kwame Nkrumah, Sekou Toure, and Kwame Ture
The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) is organizing African Liberation Day (ALD) 2012, in honor of El Hajj Malik Shabazz, Malcolm X and Ho Chi Minh of the Republic of Viet Nam. It is our objective that this ALD intensify the nation, class, and gender struggles in the African and international world by centering this political struggle, the struggle to more clearly define the revolutionary African Personality and Culture and the morals, values, ethics, and principles, which engender them.
We believe that this ideological struggle will evolve into an understanding for all involved and for African People to clearly see that for the struggle for Pan-Africanism – the total liberation and unification of Africa under scientific socialism, to move to a higher stage, to take a qualitative leap forward, we must correctly analyze, inherit, and continue with a renewed commitment and dynamism the revolutionary theory and practice of Kwame Nkrumah, Sekou Toure, and Kwame Ture. We know the truth of Kwame Nkrumah‘s axiom “practice without thought is blind; thought without practice is empty”. History has documented that revolutionary ideology and organization are indispensable weapons of the oppressed, but struggling African Masses and of all Oppressed Humanity.
African Liberation Day convenes at The Emergence Community Arts Collective, 733 Euclid St. NW Washington, DC 2001. The Diplomatic Reception, please RSVP, starts at 5 pm and the Symposium at 7:00 pm. We honor Ho Chi Minh and Malcolm X as May 19th is their birthdays. They were uncompromising fighters for their People and all Oppressed Humanity.
Ho Chi Minh (19 May 1890 – 2 September 1969) was a humble man, a servant of his People, a Vietnamese nationalist and socialist revolutionary who, while living in the US, attended meetings of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), led by Marcus Garvey and who would later direct Kwame Ture, formerly known as Stokely Carmichael, to Africa, and revolutionary Pan-Africanism. Kwame travelled to Vietnam following his attendance at the First Conference of the Organization of Latin American Solidarity in Cuba. It was in Hanoi, August 1967, that Kwame had an audience with “Uncle Ho”. It was Uncle Ho, as he was fondly called, that led the Vietnamese Revolution defeating both French and U.S. Imperialism in Vietnam.
El Hajj Malik Shabazz (Malcolm X), ( May 19, 1925 – February 21, 1965), a Muslim minister, was an uncompromising revolutionary Pan-Africanist, the son of a UNIA organizer. Malcolm X held a principled position in opposition to capitalism, imperialism, and zionism and all forms of oppression and exploitation. He was targeted by the FBI’s Counter-intelligence Program (COINTELPRO) and was assassinated February 21, 2965. He left the African world many revolutionary political lessons and modeled African People’s and Oppressed Humanity’s dignified, revolutionary and fearless hatred of our primary and common enemy, U.S. led capitalism, imperialism, neo-colonialism, and zionism.
Our ALD 2012 Program
African Liberation Day, originally called Africa Freedom Day, was founded by Osageyfo Kwame Nkrumah at the First Conference of Independent African States, held April 15, 1958 in Accra, Ghana to mark the onward progress of the African Revolution. The name was later changed to African Liberation Day at the founding of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) May 25, 1963. This change reflected an intensification of the nation, class, and gender struggle in the African Revolution expressed in all forms of political struggle, but most significantly, in the armed struggle for National Liberation, Unification, and Socialism. ALD has been held in every corner of the world since it’s founding and is now fifty-four (54) years old.
