The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) is a socialist political party founded by Kwame Nkrumah and organized in Conakry, Guinea in 1968. The party expanded to the United States in 1972 and at present has chapters in 33 countries.[1]

Nkrumah’s goal in founding the party was to create and manage the political economic conditions necessary for the emergence of an All-African People’s Revolutionary Army that would lead the military struggle against “settler colonialism, Zionism, neo-colonialism, imperialism and all other forms of capitalist oppression and exploitation.”[2]
