In the 1960s, one attended the emergence in the United States a movement that came to be kn as the Black Arts Movement. According to its founders, the assimilation of the African-American would unquestionably go through loss of identity; hence their quest for sovereignty. In the course of time, however, it appeared that in the absence of an international footprint and approving conscience, the BAM would be short-lived and sovereignty sheer utopia. At this juncture myriad African-American singers, musicians, writers, poets, playwrights, and political activists like the Black Panthers, influenced by Algeria’s War of Independence; the meeting of Algeria’s Premier Ben Bella with Dr Martin Luther King in New York and W. E. Dubois in Accra, and by one of the architects of the war, Frantz Fanon etc., saw to attend the First Pan-African Festival, organized and hosted in Algiers by the OAU president, Houari Boumediene.
