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 security and political situation in the Southern African state of Zimbabwe where unrest has been taking place over the last several months; the Egyptian economy has been evaluated by the International Monetary Fund (MF); there are reports of numerous violations of the ceasefire agreement by armed opposition forces in Syria where a brokered truce was negotiated by the United States and the Russian Federation; and fighting is continuing over the control of oil resources in the beleagured North African state of Libya. In the second hour we continue our monthlong commemoration of the literary contributions of African people with a focus on the pioneering African American poet Gwendolyn Brooks. We will also present a rare archival audio file from 1961 featuring a discussion between James Baldwin, Lorraine Hansberry and Langston Hughes on problems associated with the publishing of Black writers in America. In the final hour we feature an interview with the African Caribbean author and activist CLR James on his life and times during the 20th century.
