Why this Conference
We are in the process of building powerful African Women’s and Youth Movements throughout the world that will connect all African women and youth, inside and outside of Africa . This is a very important part of the African independence movement. An African Women’s and Youth movement is necessary to educate, mobilize, and organize the largest number of African Women and Youth as possible. Our vision includes collectively solving our problems to obtain collective housing, collective kitchens, proper childcare, transportation, good healthcare, clean drinking water for all and employment/skills, etc. We must build a strong infrastructure in Africa and we must be tightly organized inside and outside of Africa . The strengths and weaknesses of those of us outside of Africa are directly related to the strengths and weaknesses of Africa itself.
In order to be in the African Women’s and Youth Movements you must study two books, Class Struggle in Africa by Kwame Nkrumah and Women in Society by Sekou Toure. The study must be with a group of people.
The African Women’s Charity Organization is proud to announce that we are organizing the African Women’s and Youth Conference in San Diego, California USA on Saturday, August 4, 2012 10:00 am – 4:00 pm at Malcolm X Branch Library 5148 Market Street. This will be the 25th conference that we have organized since we started having conferences the year 2000; twelve other conferences have been in the United States and twelfth conferences have been in Africa . Some countries; Senegal , Guinea , Ghana , Mali , Gambia , Rwanda . The theme of these conferences is “The Unification of Africa through the Emancipation and Leadership of Women”. Contact us for more information regarding the Indiana , Indianapolis and Maputo , Mozambique conferences.
“All people of African descent whether they live in North or South America, the Caribbean, or any other part of the world are Africans and belong to the African nation and until Africa is united under a socialist government, we lack a national home.”
On Independence Day for Ghana , March 6, 1957 President Nkrumah declared that the independence of Ghana was meaningless unless it was connected to the unification of Africa . The unification of Africa will not be a reality if organized from the top down like the Organization of African Unity(OAU) or the African Union(AU); it must be organized from the bottom up. To organize African society from the bottom up means to organize the women of Africa .
“Women’s struggle for liberation must be seen as a part of the more general struggle against capitalism, and never as an isolated struggle directed against men.” “We must first of all commit ourselves to the building of a society whose mode of production excludes any exploitation.” Women have been in the leadership of humanity for 98% of the time that humanity has been on earth in a mode of production called communalism. Under communalism, for example, all land and means of production belonged to the community. There was people’s ownership. Labor was the need and habit of all and there was no exploitation.
“The most serious ideological blindness, it must be emphasized, lies in reducing the emancipation of the woman solely to the female element; presenting woman’s emancipation as a problem particular to women is a monumental error.” Men and women are complimentary sexes, not opposite sexes. This is why we have organized within the African Women’s Charity Organization an organization called “Men for the Emancipation of Women.” We understand that the emancipation of women is necessary for the emancipation of men. Organization is the weapon of the oppressed. Every person must join an organization and the strategy must be the organizing of organizations. It is our goal to become so organized that we can do in one day what previously took 20 years. The radicalization of the revolution is the unification of Africa through the emancipation and leadership of women.
We cannot be defeated if women come to love the work for the unification of Africa like she loves her family; and there is nothing more positive for her family than the unification of Africa . Women are the major force of social change in society because women are the primary educators for both the boys and the girls in society and the consciousness that she will gain from working for the unification of Africa will come out through her children’s love for Africa, and the children’s determination to use their education to build a strong Africa. In Africa we have everything that we need for the liberation and unification of Africa .
Organization and confidence are what is now necessary.
