Listen to this special edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. The broadcast features our regular PANW reports with dispatches on the continuing anti-racist demonstrations led by African American students at university and college campuses across the United States; more difficult economic times are predicated for the Republic of South Africa amid a drought, labor unrest and negative growth figures; the international community has become further alarmed by the continuing political instability in the Central African state of Burundi where protests are ongoing stemming from a disputed election earlier this year; and developments in Baltimore and Detroit illustrate that the U.S. ruling class has no program for the reconstruction of the majority African American populated cities suffering from an unprecedented economic and social crisis. The second hour proceeds with a month-long focus on African historical periodization highlighting and contextualizing the Detroit economic crisis through a broadcast done by Abayomi Azikiwe two years ago over the Progressive Radio Network. Finally we will hear an archived lecture by African American historian and social scientist Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois speaking on the character of national oppression and the world situation.
