WHAT IS PAN-AFRIKANISM?
Pan-Africanism is a worldwide movement that aims to encourage and strengthen bonds of solidarity between all indigenous and ethnic groups of African descent. The movement became known by Marcus Garvey, who was a fearless leader striving to create better conditions for people of African descent. Marcus Garvey created the Pan-African flag to show unity for all African descent all over the world. The Pan-African flag has three colors with different meaning. Red- The blood that unites all people of Black African ancestry, and shed for liberation. Black- For the people whose existence as a nation, though not a nation-state, is affirmed by the existence of the flag. Green- The abundant and vibrant natural wealth of Africa, the Motherland.
