The program features our regular PANW report with dispatches on the visit of President Robert Mugabe to the Non-Aligned Movement Summit on Magarita Island in the South American state of Venezuela; the NAM Summit is holding its 17th gathering amid intensified attacks on the emerging nations throughout the world; the Pentagon has struck a Syrian military base in the east of the country killing at least 62 soldiers and wounding more than 100; and the Russian and US envoys to the United Nations walked out respectively during the other's address before a specially-convened Security Council meeting on the situation in Syria on the eve of the General Assembly beginning next week. In the second hour we take an historical view of the resurgence in anti-racist demonstrations in the NFL and other sports settings with guest Hardy Williams from the Los Angeles Unified School District who 30 years ago was attacked for refusing to stand for the national anthem as a athletic instructor and coach. In the final hour we examine the life and times of African Caribbean author CLR James as part of the monthlong recognition of the literary contributions of African people around the world.
