This book is amazing. It isn't long but it is extremely dense. The first chapter is the toughest one to get through then after that Nkrumah is on a roll. This book helped open my eyes & set me on my path to becoming politically conscious. Excellent read, a favorite of mine.

Really wish he had talked more about colonization and socialism and less about actual philosophy.

He discusses Kant and Hume in this more than he does africa. Not really what I wanted.
