All-African Peoples' Conference

University of Ghana
Date of event: 
December 5, 2018 - December 8, 2018
Accra, Ghana

The year 2018 marks sixty years since the First All-African Peoples' Conference (AAPC) was held in Accra, Ghana, to galvanize support for independence movements across the continent and nurse the seeds of Pan-Africanism among African peoples at home and abroad.  For the purposes of memorializing the significance of the series of meetings that came to be called the AAPC, the Institute of African Studies (IAS), University of Ghana, in collaboration with other organizations plans to commemorate this historic event by providing a platform for reflecting on the challenges facing Global Africa in order to revisit the unfinished business of the 1958 Conference. This was the business of the liberation of Africa and a transformation of relations in Africa.
