Listen to this special edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. This broadcast presents our regular PANW reports with dispatches on developments in South Africa, Libya, Yemen and Detroit. The second hour continues the examination of the 150th anniversary of the conclusion of the Civil War through the presidency and assassination of Abraham Lincoln who was killed just five days after the surrender of the confederacy. We also look at a mid-twentieth century presidency of John F. Kennedy and his response to the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba in early 1961. An audio file of a press conference held by Kennedy to explain the efforts to topple the revolutionary government of Fidel Castro is presented along with a secret telephone conversation with his brother Robert Kennedy, then attorney general, attempting to manage the fallout after the failed counter-revolution in Cuba.
