On July 23, 1900, history was made when the first Pan African Conference was held in London’s Westminster Hall. The three-day event brought together thirty leaders and activists across Africa, England, America and the West Indies, serving as a common ground for the start of a conversation on Africa and its future. From this conference began the widespread use of the word Pan-African, its course and objectives especially in Africa. On the final day of the historic conference on July 25, 1900, W.E.B.
