Listen to this edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. This program features our regular PANW reports with dispatches on events surrounding the continuing Boko Haram attacks coupled with the ruling party crisis in Nigeria; a retreat from several towns by the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM) troops in Somalia due to Al-Shabaab attacks; a national governmental campaign against illicit alcohol consumption in Kenya along with efforts to increase regional economic cooperation with Zambia and the development of wind energy technology in partnership with the People's Republic of China; and the role of the military in Lesotho where the Southern African Development Community (SADC) has deployed South African Vice-President Cyril Ramaphosa in response to the assassination of a former military commander last week. The third hour continues the month-long focus on the literary contributions of African people with a rare archival radio interview with African American poet and activist Sonia Sanchez from 1974 discussing her evolution as a writer. In the previous hour we began with a presentation of an archived 1981 lecture by Johnetta Cole discussing racist violence and gender oppression during this time period.
