This book begins with the meeting of thirty eminent black leaders, representing the United States, Africa, and the West Indies, in London as European armies installed themselves on the African continent. There the leaders formed a permanent committee of the Pan-African Association and convened a Pan-Africanist conference—arguably the first of several twentieth-century, international, Pan-African congresses meeting to establish Pan-African unity and challenge the horrors of colonialism in Africa and elsewhere—on behalf of the “natives in various parts of the world, viz. South Africa, West Africa, the West Indies, and the United States.” W. E. B. Du Bois delivered the event's culminating address, “To the Nations of the World.” In the opening paragraph, he asked how long power would be used to deny the “darker races” opportunities and privileges in the modern world.

Keywords:   black leaders, European armies, African continent, Pan-African Association, Pan-Africanist conference
