Listen to this special broadcast of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. The program features our regular PANW reports on events in Charleston, South Carolina where the final funeral was held for the victims of the racist massacre at Mother Emanuel AME Church on June 17; the hidden character of the US economy as distorted by the jobless figures released every month; a settlement reached in the BP oil spill in 2010; and developments in Tunisa and Libya in light of the growing instability in the region. In the second hour we focus on two leading African American writers of the 20th century Langston Hughes and Ralph Ellision through the poetry of the former as well as a classic audio archive from the CBS Radio Workshop of 1948 and an interview with Arnold Rampersad, biographer of Ralph Ellision. Finally, in the third hour we listen to an audio documentary on the current state of South African literature some two decades after the overthrow of the apartheid system.
