Chapter 30 Discussion Question

During the Paris Peace Conference after World War I, the Treaty of Versailles would give many nations political and social self-determination. As we learned in our discussion of the “Scramble for Africa”, many minorities lived in oppressed nations. Over time, individuals such as W.E.B. Du Bois would pave the way for freedom in countries such as Ghana. This movement would become known as Pan-Africanism.
