Listen to this edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. We feature at the bottom of the first hour our regular PANW reports with dispatches on developments involving United States-Cuba relations, the burgeoning battle over the world's water resources, an update on the floods that have hit Ghana over the last week and the ongoing U.S.-backed Saudi-GCC war against Yemen. The second hour in honor of Black Music Month we examine the legacy of the Blues and Jazz with a rare archival radio broadcast from 1960 highlighting African American poet, novelist, playwright, songwriter and social commentator Langston Hughes. Others in this segment include blues artists James Cotton and Otis Spann. In the final hour we will hear another treasured documentary reviewing the life and artistic contributions of Jazz singer Eddie Jefferson who was heavily influenced by Charlie Parker and other be-bop musicians who emerged during World War II and afterwards.
