Listen to this special edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. The program features our regular PANW reports highlighting updates on developments in Yemen, Kenya, Cuba and Libya. In the second hour we discuss United States-Latin American relations with National Network on Cuba representative Cheryl LaBash. Finally, the third hour continues our commemoration of the 47th anniversary of the martyrdom of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We present archived recordings of a press conference held by the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) where Stokely Carmichael (later known and Kwame Ture) explains the political implications of the assassination of Dr. King on April 5, 1968 in Washington, D.C. In addition another archived recording of a memorial rally held in Central Park in New York City on the same day which presents a speech by the-then SNCC International Affairs Director James Forman calling for retribution in response to the assassination of Dr. King and other leaders.
