Nkrumah, Kwame

Foreign Affairs;Oct58, Vol. 37 Issue 1, p45
This article explains that on the basis of Ghana's own economic development, the author advances an interpretation of some aspects of the "African personality" and of the African approach to world problems. In a continent of the scale and diversity of Africa, it is natural that there should be divergences and differences and varying points of emphasis. But there are three traits common to all emergent Africa and they must decisively affect its relations with the rest of the world. The first is a desire to see Africa free and independent. The second is a determination to pursue foreign policies based upon non-alignment. The third is an urgent need for economic development.
