The African Youth Movement for Liberation and Unity was organized to advocate for decolonization, support for liberation movements, and education and enlightenment of African students in the U.S. The organization supported the liberation struggles in the Portuguese colonies (Angola, Mozambique, Guinea-Bissau, Cape Verde) and Zimbabwe as well as the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa. It also promoted Pan Africanism. The organization collaborated with the American Committee on Africa (ACOA), the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), the African Information Service, and other organizations. The African Youth Movement for Liberation and Unity published a newsletter.
