Today we open the gregorian calendar year month of May with Thanksgiving and recognition of the role of workers in all societies of every race and creed in building the economic strength and stability of their countries.
This month usually ushers in the Kwame Toure lecture series hosted by Emancipation Support Committee and is the month in which the anniversary of the founding of the Organization of African Unity which has now become the African Union is celebrated.
EGBE ONISIN ELEDUMARE recognizes and designates the day of the commemoration of the founding of the O.A.U. as African Unity Day.
