If any of us came to Cuba with doubts in our mind about the solidity, strength, maturity and vitality of the Cuban Revolution, these doubts have been removed by what we have been able to see.

Cabral found himself active in the nationalist struggle, a political context that enabled him to reflect on several aspects of the armed struggle. He developed his understanding and theories of the national liberation struggle in the political context of militant nationalism; he fought as he wrote incisively about that struggle, and passionately struggled as he wrote. This dialectical experience enriched his theoretical understanding of the aims, goals, strategies and ideologies that informed the nature of political involvement in the movement for national liberation.
Unity & Struggle: Speeches and Writings of Amilcar Cabral
On January 20, —48 years ago today—Cabral was murdered by fascist Portuguese assassins just months before the national liberation movement in which he played a central role won the independence of Guinea-Bissau. This particular struggle was waged for the liberation of not just one country—Guinea-Bissau, where the fighting took place—but also for another geographically-separate region, the archipelago Cape Verde. Cabral and the other leaders of the movement understood that they were fighting in a larger anti-colonial struggle and global class war and, as such, that their immediate enemies were not only the colonial governments of particular countries, but Portuguese colonialism in general.

Her family was not well off, so she was unable to pursue higher education.

Leadership in Colonial Africa pp Cite as. T he argument forwarded in this chapter is that the diplomatic achievements of Amilcar Cabral provided the groundwork to his success as a modern African leader. They were not just an added bonus. Being a fantastic diplomat is key to the success of any African leader, but it is twice as important for those leaders from the many small African states in the world system. There are two parts that must be considered here: the relations with African neighbors and a productive relationship one that is beneficial to the small African state with countries outside of Africa. Both are indispensable to nation building and the implementation of domestic policies and programs intended to improve the quality of life of domestic constituencies.

In this special issue on Amilcar Cabral we seek to return to the life, writings, legacy, political, social, economic and cultural insights of this revolutionary figure whilst examining what he means to Africans and their struggles of today. Amilcar Cabral would be 90 years old on 12 September if his life had not been cruelly cut short by reactionary forces on 20 January He was 49 years old at the time and therefore 20 January marks forty one years since his brutal assassination. Cabral risks becoming an obscure figure to new and younger generations not only in Africa but globally who are able to reel off sportsmen and women, musicians and celebrities, rather than revolutionary internationalist figures such as Cabral. Therefore in an attempt to reinsert Cabral into the consciousness of African people and progressive peace loving citizens around the world, Pambazuka News celebrates the short life, thought and contribution of this almost forgotten figure who was not only an agronomist, guerrilla fighter, but a poet and political theoretician committed to the unity of Africa and Africans.
