Annual Convention of the AASUA, 1957
African students in the United States were active participants in the lives of their countries of origin. Like their counterparts in Great Britain and France, they kept abreast of political developments throughout the continent and were involved in the movements that demanded the end of colonialism. When African countries achieved their independence in the 1960s, some of these students came to occupy high positions.
