At Beach City Radio, we are purposed to build a bridge of music arts and culture between Africa and America. To that end, we are commemorating Africa Day – the day the Organization of African Unity was formed and representing unity, independence and freedom. On May 25 1963, representatives of thirty African nations met in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, hosted by Emperor Haile Selassie. By then more than two-thirds of the continent had achieved independence, mostly from imperial European states. At this meeting, the Organization of African Unity was founded, with the initial aim to encourage the decolonization of Angola, Mozambique, South Africa and Southern Rhodesia(now Zimbabwe). The organization pledged to support the work conducted by freedom fighters, and remove military access to colonial nations. A charter was set out which sought to improve the living standards across member states. Emperor Selassie exclaimed, “May this convention of union last 1,000 years.”% | % | % | %
