Words from Nkrumah

March 6, 2013

Who are our present day African leaders? Quotes from Nkrumah are below. Read them. Happy Independence Day.

“We prefer self-government with danger to servitude in tranquility.”

“We face neither East nor West; we face Forward”

“Freedom is not something that one people can bestow on another as a gift. Thy claim it as their own and none can keep it from them.”


“A State in the grip of neo-colonialism is not master of its own destiny. It is this factor which makes neo-colonialism such a serious threat to world peace.”

“We have the blessing of the wealth of our vast resources, the power of our talents and the potentialities of our people. Let us grasp now the opportunities before us and meet the challenge to our survival.”

“In the era of neocolonialism, under-development is still attributed not to exploitation but to inferiority, and racial undertones remain closely interwoven with the class struggle.”
