Joseph Ekwe Bilé (1892-1959) came to Germany as a citizen of the German colony in Cameroon to study. In Berlin, he founded the International League for the Defense of the Negrorace. This was a suborganization of the KPD and networked worldwide in the struggle against imperialism. As a delegate of the LzVN, he traveled to Moscow. He became an opponent of Stalin, turned away from the KPD and joined the Pan-African Movement. He returned to Cameroon in 1935 via Paris and worked as an architect.
