    Africa’s Great Freedom Fighter Makes Passage into the Ancestral World

    Africa’s great son, Baba Elombe Brath who died on May 19, 2014 will be funeralised on May 31, 2014 at Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, New York. Born in a Garveyite family, Elombe Brath was a brilliant Pan Africanist, journalist, international activist, artist, community organizer and global leader. He was a strong advocate of revolutionary leaders such as President Kwame Nkrumah, Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba, President Robert Mugabe and President Fidel Castro and played a pivotal role in supporting the liberation struggles in Africa, the U.S.A, the Caribbean, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East, and Europe.

    Elombe Brath was raised from birth under the influence of the Honorable Marcus Garvey in the African Nationalist Pioneer Movement (ANPM) led by Carlos Cooke of the Dominican Republic. He then spent his full life fighting for the decolonization of Africa and other oppressed nations of the world. He stood firmly for Black empowerment in the USA and beyond, and was a champion for human rights and justice. His main role as a freedom fighter was coordinating, promoting and providing direct support and assistance to the leaders of the liberation struggles across Africa, especially in southern Africa. Also, from his Harlem headquarters of the Pan African movement, he worked directly with revolutionary leaders and ambassadors at the United Nations to mobilize support and assistance for Pan African resistance to imperialism, colonialism and neo-colonialism, and for the building of Garvey’s vision for a united states of Africa.

    In addition to organizing and spearheading African liberation support committees, the tireless Brath helped to co-found several key organizations including the Patrice Lumumba Coalition PLC), the December the 12th Movement (D-12) and the World African Diaspora Union (WADU). With the establishment of the African Union in 2003, Elombe intensified his work to unify the African Diaspora which led to the establishment of WADU in 2007 in Jamaica. During this final phase of his work, Brath in his push for a unified Diaspora, consistently warned of the new scramble for the re-colonization of Africa. In his final painful and poignant messages, he stressed that Africa was suffering from “Africa Imperialist Dependency Syndrome (AIDS) which required a much more organized and unified African Diaspora to help liberate Africa, again.

    At the July 107th Pan African Movement Summit, Baba Brath was appointed the Political Commissioner of WADU by His Excellency Baba Dudley Thompson, President of WADU. The Summit which called for a strong African Diaspora union prioritized WADU pushing for a Pan African Government and also resolved for all Africans to promote dual citizenship, reparations, repatriation, economic partnership, and for African culture, to be the basis for a united states of Africa. The 2007 Summit would be the last major event that he participated in. In August 2007, while enroute to the Caribbean to meet Dr. Randall Robinson, Baba Brath had a stroke and remained ill until he transitioned on May 19, 2014.

    WADU is urging all Africans to continue raising Baba Elombe Brath’s name across the African world as a powerful Pan African model of steadfast duty in service to African people and Africa. WADU will continue his legacy as a tribute to his consistent and incorruptible work for Africa and the oppressed in the world.
