Marah, SUNY—Brockport Compared to his African presidential contemporaries, (Kaunda, Nyerere, Kenyatta, Obote and others) Kwame Nkrumah remains the most outstanding African political figure of the twentieth century (Mazrui, 1993: 13–21); he is also the most outstanding and prolific pan-Africanist politician.

In 1963, at the founding of the Organization of African Unity, the majority of the African leaders in Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital, opted for a diluted form of Kwame Nkrumah’s radical Pan-Africanism. While Nkrumah vehemently advocated immediate continental unity, the Tanzanians, Nigerians, Liberians, Sierra Leoneans, Kenyans, and the Francophone Africans advocated cooperations between African countries. Mr. Tubman of Liberia, Sir Milton Margai of Sierra Leone, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa of Nigeria, Haile Selassie of Ethiopia, and Julius Nyerere of Tanzania all opposed Kwame Nkrumah’s radical Pan-Africanism as unrealistic and too fast-paced.
