May 25: African Liberation Day

African Liberation Day was founded in 1958 when Kwame Nkrumah convened the First Conference of Independent States held in Accra, Ghana and attended by eight independent African states. April 15 was declared African Freedom Day. Between 1958 and 1963, seventeen countries in Africa won their independence. On May 25, 1963, thirty-one African Heads of state convened a summit meeting to found the Organization of African Unity (OAU). They renamed African Freedom Day to “African Liberation Day” and changed its date to May 25th.
