5th Pan African Congress

15 Oct 1945
Event location: 



The 5th Pan-African Congress took place in Manchester in October 1945. It was organised by George Padmore and included an Indian delegation headed by Surat Alley. The Ceylonese student T. Subasinghe also helped to organise the event. Despite the large turn-out of delegates, the conference received scant mention in the British Press.
