It was a call to not only help rebuild the independent country of Ghana, but to also join in the creation of a liberated Pan-African territory. On the day that Ghana's independence was proclaimed, Nkrumah, who became Ghana's first president, stated that Ghana's independence was meaningless unless it was linked to the liberation of the whole of Africa. Intertwining the struggles of the Diaspora and Africa, Footprints of Pan-Africanism honors the powerful bonds that were so crucial to this era.
