Edward H. Brown Jr. ’69 BA (PSc)/’78 MPA Publishes Book on Pan-Africanism

Maxwell alumnus Edward H. Brown Jr. has recently published a new book with Outskirts Press, The “New” Pan-Africanism – 2020: “United Continental Republic of Africa (UCRA).” 

“Brown’s book developed out of the crucible of experience and struggle. This work provides important details on the luminaries of the Pan African movement, including Garvey, Du Bois, Nkrumah, Padmore, Malcolm X, among others who emphasized that unity is a necessity for the development and advancement of Africa and of people of African descent. In describing the formation and development of the principles of Pan Africanism, the author provides fresh details on the relationship forged between continental Africans and Diasporan Africans. Equally significant, this work highlights the main processes in Africa and in the Diaspora that pose challenges for the fulfillment of the ideas of Pan Africanism. A key feature of this work is the promise of youths in forging the context for the development and advancement of the principles of Pan Africanism.” Dr. Marcia E. Sutherland, Chair, Department of Africana Studies, University at Albany.
