Listen to this special 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 President Uhuru Kenyatta of the East African state of Kenya who has launched a new political party inside the country; the Polisario Front of the Western Sahara has appealed to the United Nations Security Council to intervene to prevent the construction of a wall inside the occupied territory in Northwest Africa; there has been a political deal worked out in Guinea-Bissau aimed at resolving the turmoil inside the national government; and a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) asset who heads a militia in Libya has seized control of several oil ports in the west of the troubled North African state. In the second hour we continue our focus on the literary contributions of African people with another audio file on the legendary poet, essayist, novelist, playwright and composer Langston Hughes. The final segment presents a lecture by former New York Times writer Tom Wicker who reflects on the Attica Prison Rebellion of 45 years ago.
