Greetings and Welcome to the New Pan Africanism 2020 (TNPA2020-UPAN.net) website
The goal of this website is to bring the United Pan African Nation (UPAN) into political existence by the year 2020. This website provides a forum for relevant information, positive discussions, networking and for igniting and organizing a global Pan African Youth Movement towards this end. Ours is a struggle to permanently secure the freedom, self-determination and unification of African people “at home and abroad”.
The global focus of this endeavor is Black sub-Saharan Africa and the African Diasporas in the United States, Caribbean, South America and wherever else on Earth that conscious people of African ancestry reside. The ideological cement for this monumental undertaking can be gleaned from the pages my new book entitled “The New Pan Africanism 2020 (UCRA)” that was published in the Spring of 2012.
African people of the world must unite. Our history, and the negativity of our current conditions, demands it. We certainly deserve it. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Accordingly, I strongly encourage you to become an active participant and regular discussant on this site. Your youthful enthusiasm, exemplary courage, new ideas, visionary leadership and executive skills are desperately needed. I look forward to hearing from you as we move this great historic project forward.
Our illustrious Pan African ancestors, Toussaint, Delany, Menelik II, Yaa Asantewaa, Garvey, Malcolm, Ella Baker, Nkrumah, Lumumba, Cabral, Nyerere, etc., are watching and waiting for us to take the baton from them to finish their work by taking us across of the African unification finish line. Their loud cries of ”Africa for the Africans, those at home, and those abroad”, “African problems are our problems and our problems are African problems” and “Africa Must Unite” still resound strongly in our ears.
We shall answer them with victory. It’s been a long time coming… but it is your destiny to be the transformative generation that will finally make the Pan African dreams of our ancestors reality.
“Without Unity, there is no future for Africa”
African Elder Statesman, Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, March 6, 1997
Let’s do this !
