The 3rd Kwame Nkrumah Festival took place as the COVID-19 pandemic swept Africa. Rather than cancel or postpone, the festival was embraced as an opportunity for positive action to to lift and re-energise our collective pan-African morale and advance pan-African digitalization while celebrating the legacy of Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
The 2021 festival was curated by the 4th Kwame Nkrumah Chair. During the 10 days of activities it was visited by over 6,000 visitors from 103 countries, more than half of whom came from 48 of Africa’s 54 nations. It the first to be digitally curated, hosted fully online and globally broadcast. We have since turned it into a digital archive to serve as a Pan-African knowledge resource. The contents include the latest intellectual and political dialogues among pan-Africanist feminist, youths and other Information Age groups and movements dedicated to bringing about positive change.
