Why is radical social change important? It is important, because it is a movement that transforms a new way of life. This new way of life happened only through the people unifying together, and creating equality. The purpose of this essay is to compare the Cuban revolution movement, and the May 1968 movement as two very different attempts of change. Each movement had their own stories of origins, and these are the original blueprints how we approach social change today.

The political identities play a significant role in the understanding of Williams, Dubois, and Nkrumah’s Pan-Africanism and how it has shaped their lives. Henry Sylvester Williams was born in Trinidad in 1869 where he eventually moved to London to organize the formation of the Pan-African Association. This resulted in the first Pan-African conference in 1900, the beginnings of the modern Pan-African movement. Several historians claim Henry Sylvester Williams originally conceived the term “Pan-African”. His abolitionist notions made him desire the removal of all forms of British colonialism from Africa and the West Indies, thus shaping Williams’ political identity.
Kwame Nkrumah is known as a Ghanaian revolutionary. He was a politician, author, leader, and the first prime minister and president of Ghana, leading it to independence from Britain in 1957.

Nkrumah starts off in his foreword discussing his experience as a student in the United States of America and how witnessing the “ruthless colonial exploitation and political oppression of the people of Africa” affected him.

When one seeks to examine the Caribbean region, there is a clear recognition that the classification of its culture would be that of a subjugated culture due to the historical development of the region. The region developed purely as a tool for the wealth of Europe, through the labour of enslaved and dominated peoples: Tainos and Caribs, Africans, Indians and Chinese. The formation of the Caribbean region as it is known today is done through a process called colonialism.
