The African Nation

www.activepens.com


Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana believed (so do we), that all blacks belong to the African Nation, irrespective of where they reside on this side of heaven. 

In Kwame's words: 

"All people of African descent, whether they live in North or South America, the Caribbean or in any part of the world are Africans and belong to the African nation" - Kwame Nkrumah

When you think of the dynamics of slavery, how families were broken and taken from Africa over the Atlantic, how plantation owners separated children from their mothers or fathers, you realize the thread and bond all blacks share. Blacks calling one another "brothers" and "sisters" is not cliche, it has a fundamental underlining truth.

So, in unity, let us use this truth to our advantage.
