Africa Day

Today being Africa Day, reminded me that I once scanned this October 1963 Daily Graphic (above): "Africa Looks to You for Salvation - Our Strength Lies in Unity" ...together with a set of 1960s Tema news articles at National Archives. Note how Pioneer Aluminum ad targets export to African continent; and Modern Furniture's chairs ranged from 'The Worker - special planned and made for the low-income' to 'The Republic' and 'The Ambassador.'

Projects such as the African University of Science and Technology (AUST)- Abuja, Nigeria (http://www.aust.edu.ng) must be viewed as part of this dream for African unity
