The Political Legacy of Africa Women in Celebration of July 31, The African Union Africa's Women Day.
“The day will come when history will speak. But it will not be the history, which will be taught in Brussels, Paris, Washington or the United Nations… Instead, Africa will write its own history, and in both north and south it will be a history of glory and dignity”.
Letter from Thysville Prison to Mrs Lumumba.
