Listen to the Sat. Aug. 5, 2017 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 recent arrests of anti-government protesters in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) amid pressure being exerted by the western states against the administration of President Joseph Kabila; the Kenya Council of Churches has embarked upon a campaign to ensure that upcoming national elections will be peaceful; incumbent Rwandan President Paul Kagame has won an overwhelming victory in the poll which will return the Patriotic Front (RPF) to office for a third term; and the movie Detroit ostensbily portraying the July 1967 Rebellion has been met with condemnation by the people of the city from various political tendencies. In the second and third hours we focus on the annual commemoration of Black August, highlighting the history of resistance by African people against racism, colonialism, neo-colonialism and imperialism. This episode looks back at the urban rebellions which swept the United States five decades ago from Los Angeles, to Chicago and Detroit.
