There have been quite a few Black Leaders with "big names" here in the United States over the past several decades, but how many of these African American leaders would you consider to be Pan African in their thinking?
Du Bois? Malcolm? We can't really include brother Ture, because as we have already acknowledged, he was born in Trinidad...and early on in his "activist career", he was working toward "inclusion" as well with all the sit-ins and going on. It was a while later that he become a Black Nationalist, and later on a full-fledged Pan Africanist after he moved to the continent.
