Dr. Du Bois Pan-African Meeting Room

This seminar room once hosted Pan-African meetings, reflecting Dr. Du Bois’s role as the first Pan-African secretary. He met Kwame Nkrumah in 1945, inspiring Nkrumah to return to Ghana and lead its independence fight in 1957. Despite passport issues, Du Bois attended Nkrumah’s 1960 inauguration, discussing the “Encyclopedia Africana” project aimed at celebrating African identity and resources beyond colonial boundaries.
