Nkrumah wrote sixteen
books, two of which ~ Revolutionary Path (1973) and Rhodesia File
(1976) ~ were published posthumously by Panaf after Nkrumah's
death in 1972. All are still available to today's readers through
Nkrumah's Will named
June Milne as his Literary Executrix, and he left all his
published and unpublished papers and the copyrights of all his
writings and speeches to her. In 1997, copyright of all Nkrumah's
published works was passed to Nkrumah's son, Gamal.
On June Milne's retirement
in 1987, the management of Panaf was taken over for a short time
by a London publishing company until books which were still in
demand began to run out of print. Those arrangements were terminated
in 1997 when the present Pan-African publishers, S.S. and E.R.
Kakembo, took over to run Panaf in accordance with the wishes
of the founder.
Besides Nkrumah's books
and the Panaf Great Lives series, Panaf has also published and
continues to publish books written by other important authors
on Pan-Africanism and other related subjects.
