Today marks the 80th birthday of the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. As I sit here listening to his speeches being played on the radio, I couldn't help but wonder what kind of relationship did he and the Pan-Africanist leaders of Africa of that epoch had. I know Dr. King attended Ghana's independence day celebrations which suggests there was/ were some kind of a relationship between him the Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah. I've heard speeches of him mentioning the struggles of the South African people. I've heard him in his speeches mentioning African cities such as Johanesburg, Nairobi, Accra, etc... One thing I noticed, (and trust me I've done my fair share of research) is so far I haven't found anything that suggests any kind of relationship that Dr. King had with Julius Nyerere. Knowing what these two stood for you would think that there was heavy correspondence between them during the 50s and the 60s. Does anyone know if there was any relationship between Dr. King and Nyerere?
