The Jeunesse Gabonais was the first political party in colonial Gabon. Founded in 1922, it was "outspokenly anti-colonialist without being anti-French". The party's goals were primarily focused on improving educational opportunities and assimilated Gabonese involvement in colonial administration.[1]
