Thomas Sankara and the new Africa renaissance

Agun Mod 2013-10-24 http://www.pambazuka.org/en/issue/651 Like Nkrumah of Ghana and Nyerere of Tanzania, Sankara sought to restore dignity and honour to his country and to imbue the youth with the ideals of pan-African solidarity, dignity and honour As Africa celebrates 50 years of the founding of the Organization of African Unity, and now the Africa Union, we must thank Pambazuka for daring to promote African renaissance and our unity, in spite of our diverse cultures.
