This article tells the story of the creation of the first pan-African organization – the Organization of African Unity (OAU) – and of some of the most crucial political events of postcolonial African a airs that preceded its establishment, notably the All-African Peoples Conference (AAPC) convened by Ghana's first President Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. Taking the form of an account of an observer-cum-participant of some momentous events in modern African history (such as the AAPC and OAU), it gives a sense of the passionate commitment to African freedom and dignity as well as the desire, on the part of some African leaders, notably Kwame Nkrumah, for African unity. The description of the proceedings of the first (founding) conference of the OAU catches the mood of the times.
