Abstract

The contributions of African Women to earlier Pan African struggle is woefully inadequately documented. This Article seeks to contribute to the documentation of the contributions of Women, particularly African women. It studies the life and history of Madam Kofi but most importantly seeks to correct errors made by earlier writers on her claim to royalty and her true identity. This Paper seeks to stir debate and to encourage further research into her identity and country of origin while it adequately appreciates her role to Garveyism and the back-to-Africa concept .

Keywords: Women, Pan-Africanism, Africa, Garveyism
