Africa Day

What is Africa Day?

Overview

Africa Day, formerly known as ‘African Liberation Day’ or ‘African Freedom Day’ is the annual commemoration of the foundation of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) on May 25, 1963. It is celebrated by various countries in the African continent, as well as around the world. 

Africa Day is celebrated in recognition of African nations gaining independence from western powers that had ruled many of them for decades. There was a need to articulate the aspirations of African people, marking the onward progress of the liberation movement, and acknowledging the determination of the people of Africa to free themselves from foreign domination and exploitation, hence the observance of Africa Day once a year.
