Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to present an objective analysis of Nkrumah's distinctive contributions to African nationalism, especially his role in the Pan-African Movement. Nkrumah is a source of inspiration to all aspiring youths of African descent, both within the continent and in the Diaspora. Human right crusaders, social critics, prisoners of conscience and literary historians will always look on to him as a point of reference, and a paragon of circumspection in the sacred cause of redeeming humanity. Writing about Nkrumah is both a privilege and a meditation on history; It is hard to measure a giant.
