“Brown’s book developed out of the crucible of experience and struggle. This work provides important details on the luminaries of the Pan African movement, including Garvey, Du Bois, Nkrumah, Padmore, Malcolm X, among others who emphasized that unity is a necessity for the development and advancement of Africa and of people of African descent. In describing the formation and development of the principles of Pan Africanism, the author provides fresh details on the relationship forged between continental Africans and Diasporan Africans. Equally significant, this work highlights the main processes in Africa and in the Diaspora that pose challenges for the fulfillment of the ideas of Pan Africanism. A key feature of this work is the promise of youths in forgin the context for the development and advancement of the principles of Pan Africanism.”

“This book is so amazing! I loved it. There was so much insight in it and so many things that I was not aware of. I was really inspired by our rich heritage and our great potential as African people. This book made me see all the wonderful dreams our African leaders had for us in the past and what can become of us in the future if we, the youth of today, can embrace their pan African vision. If our generation can take up the dreams of our great leaders, and make them part of our own, we will be sure of building a great continental African nation for ourselves and the next generations to come. I am so grateful to you for this book. I am hoping to capture all its knowledge and share it with all of my friends, classmates and other students.”
