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 in Somalia where Al-Shabaab has launched fresh attacks on a hotel; the reemergence of Ebola Virus Disease cases in the West African state of Liberia after being declared free of the scrouge some three months ago; developments in Burundi where a army general previously involved in an attempted coup said this week that there are still plans to oust the regime of controversial President Pierre Nkurunziza; and the role of the American Psychological Association in providing a pseudo-scientific rationale as well as assistance in carrying out interogations by the Pentagon and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in the so-called "war on terrorism." The second hour highlights an interview with the host, Abayomi Azikiwe, over Leid Stories on PRN.fm from July 8 discussing the parallels between the economic crises in Detroit, Puerto Rico and Greece. In the final hour we continue the month-long focus on the literary contributions of African people through a rare archived lecture by African American journalist Louis Lomax delivered at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in Nov. 1962 on race and power in the United States during this period.
