Listen to this edition of the Pan-African Journal: Worldwide Radio Broadcast hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. The program features our regular PANW report with dispatches on the recently-held Southern African Development Community (SADC) Summit in Swaziland; the Zimbabwe ZANU-PF Youth Wing is scheduled to hold a conference in order to address the current unrest inside the country; the North African state of Egypt is said to be angling to become the largest economy on the continent in light of the difficulties taking place in both South Africa and Nigeria; and in South Africa controversy continues over the status of the finance minister Pravin Gordhan who has been rumored to be facing criminal charges. In the second hour we begin a month-long series on the literary contributions of African people both at home and abroad with a rare audio file of African American novelist,playwright and essayist James Baldwin. Finally we pay tribute to the Detroit Jazz Festival taking place this weekend with an archived interview with legendary artist John Coltrane from 1966.
