Pan-Africanism is an ideological and political movement, first aimed at uniting Africans to combat racial oppression (late 19th - early 20th century); since the 1950s - a movement for the liberation of all the peoples of Africa, the unification of liberation forces in the fight against and .
Pan-Africanism began to take shape at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. at the initiative of Black intellectuals from the United States and the West Indies, who demanded an end to racial discrimination and the granting of civil and political rights to black people.
The foundations of modern pan-Africanism were laid by the 5th Pan-African Congress in Manchester , 1945). People like William Du Bois, Kwame Nkrumah, Nnamdi Azikiwe, Jomo Kenyatta and other figures of the African liberation movement all took an active part. The Manchester Congress outlined a practical program for the political liberation of Africa. By setting the task of liberating all the peoples of Africa, regardless of their racial affiliation, the pan-African movement contributed to the general rise of the liberation struggle on the African continent. After the conquest of political independence by most African countries, the pan-African idea began to be embodied in the establishment of comprehensive inter-African ties and in the support of movements seeking the elimination of colonial and racist regimes.
After African countries gained independence, pan-Africanism was associated with the idea developed by the first president of Ghana Kwame Nkrumah in the 1960s, in order to create a single state on the African continent - the United States of Africa. After his death in 1972, Libyan ruler assumed the mantle of leader of the Pan-Africanist movement and became the most outspoken advocate of African Unity.
There are two flags used to represent this movement: Green-Yellow-Red, based off the Rastafari movement colors of Ethiopian flag (many independent states have adopted this color scheme, seeing as Ethiopia was the only uncolonized African country), and Red-Black-Green which is rather a flag of than Pan-African movement.
Pan-Africanism, who had a long time lived in his native land suffered the worst of colonialism. Believing he can improve Africa, he wants to do everything to make sure Africans are united, which is why he hangs out with other Black ideologies to discuss "African unity". However, believing internationalists are only pretending to "care" for Africans to preserve soft imperialism, he can be very skeptical about these foreigners building investments right in front of his door and has a hard time trusting them.
