Description DM1999121013:SAED:POLITICS:FOREIGN:MAR1959 - All Africa Met Here - All Africa is waking up, growing up, joining up. We have arrived at one of the great turning points in history. For then days Accra, and the whole of Ghana, played host to over 300 men and women from more than 25 African countries who had gathered for the conference. Their subject was: The Furure of Africa. The delegates were at the conference for two reasons. To work out how best Africa could be freed from colonialism and imperialism and to set the foundations for a Union of Independent African States. Accra's Community Centre Hall was crowded to hear the opening address by Dr Kwame Nkrumah. (Photograph by Christian Gbagbo Baileys Archive)
