Zanzibar and Tanganyika Merge
Zanzibar had become independent in 1963. In January 1964 the predominately Arab government was overthrown by Black nationalists. President Nyerere of Tanganyika suggested that the two countries merge. The suggestion was accepted by Zanzibar and a new country by the name of Tanzania was born.
