Amílcar Cabral, Guinean Revolutionary Leader b. September 12, 1924

Amílcar Cabral, Bissau-Guinean and Cape Verdean revolutionary, theoretician and independence leader, was born September 12, 1924. He was assassinated in January, 1973, only eight months before Guinea-Bissau became independent.

Fidel Castro once said of Cabral that he was “one of the most lucid and brilliant leaders in Africa, who instilled in us tremendous confidence in the future and the success of his struggle for liberation.”
