Upon moving to Guinea he changed his name to Kwame Ture. He died there of prostate cancer in November 1998. His philosophy was a mixture of self-determinism and black nationalism which resulted in him leaning more towards separatism then integration. As a result of these tendencies he eventually left both SNCC and the Black Panther Party because of their integrationist goals and their willingness to work with white student radical groups such as the Students for a Democratic Society. With Kwame Nkrumah, the ousted leader of Guinea, he formed the All African Peoples Revolutionary Party which still has some members in the United States. Upon his deathbed Kwame Ture was visited by the Rev. Jesse Jackson which suggests something of the reverance for him even in more moderate civil rights circles.
