SORT BY Relevancy
Listen to the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. This month we are focusing on the character of state repression under capitalism and imperialism.The United States political and economic system was built through the forced removal and extermination of millions of Native Americans and the kidnapping, transporting and enslavement of millions more Africans. We will look into the historical and structural roots of the current crisis in the world system during the course of this month.
In an effort to build consensus across the Global African Diaspora around strategies for cooperating and coordinating, CFA collaborates with African Views to facilitate a conference call of Diaspora leaders in the Western Hemisphere, as part of the 2015 Ronald H.
