The February 1919 Pan-African Congress in Paris, France, convened by WEB Du Bois and Ida Gibbs Hunt, is the first of five high-profile international congresses after World War I (1914-1918) that demands the restoration of African independence in continental Africa/the Caribbean/Americas and enhanced cooperation among African peoples globally after 400 years of the enslavement and conquest and occupation and underdevelopment of African peoples and Africa by the European World
