Silas Palmer fellow Nana Osei-Opare, a historian of African history at UCLA, has recently consulted Hoover's collections for a forthcoming book project on Africa's first socialist African revolution. His project “‘Forward Ever’: Post-Colonial Capitalism and Socialism in Ghana, 1957–1966,” re-evaluates current scholarship on the Ghanaian revolution by comparing the economic policies of Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana's first prime minister, to those of the Soviet Union’s New Economic Policy of the 1920s.
