Regarding Race, Nation, and Our Future

Written Work by Graham T. Baden

Ruben Um Nyobe

This man is fascinating!

I wrote a paper about Cameroonian independence in 2012 (I finally uploaded it) and I really want to flesh it out with new information about Nyobe. It’s just really hard to find!

I even read in Long Walk to Freedom that Mandela studied guerrilla tactics used in Cameroon while he trained for their own movement in South Africa. Nyobe is a lost political leader of pan-Africa!

If only I was better at French. Time to start taking classes…

Here’s his speech given at the United Nations shortly before he was assassinated.
