Revisiting the 1958 All-African People's Conference: The Unfinished Business of Liberation and Transformation
The 60th anniversary of the 1958 All-African People’s Conference was commemorated globally by Pan-Africanists in 2018. The Institute of African Studies in collaboration with Lincoln University, the Socialist Movement of Ghana (Formerly Socialist Forum of Ghana), Third World Network-Africa and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) of Ghana hosted a global celebration of the anniversary from the 5th to 8th of December, 2018 at the University of Ghana. This special issue, which presents six feature articles written in connection with the 60th-anniversary celebration, is another instalment of the Institute’s efforts to commemorate an epochal event in the history of the emancipatory struggles of the African people. The feature articles focus on some of the key themes of the conference: decolonising knowledge production; a new politics for substantive democracy and security; economic liberalisation and the crises of work; and Pan-Africanism yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
