    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    If a Negro in 1964 has to sit around and wait for some cracker senator to filibuster when it comes to the rights of black people, why, you and I should hang our heads in shame. You talk about a march on Washington in 1963, you haven't seen anything. There's some more going down in '64. 


    And this time they're not going like they went last year. They're not going singing ''We Shall Overcome." They're not going with white friends. They're not going with placards already painted for them. They're not going with round-trip tickets. They're going with one way tickets. And if they don't want that non-nonviolent army going down there, tell them to bring the filibuster to a halt.


    The black nationalists aren't going to wait. Lyndon B. Johnson is the head of the Democratic Party. If he's for civil rights, let him go into the Senate next week and declare himself. Let him go in there right now and declare himself. Let him go in there and denounce the Southern branch of his party. Let him go in there right now and take a moral stand -- right now, not later. Tell him, don't wait until election time. If he waits too long, brothers and sisters, he will be responsible for letting a condition develop in this country which will create a climate that will bring seeds up out of the ground with vegetation on the end of them looking like something these people never dreamed of. In 1964, it's the ballot or the bullet.


    Thank you.

    Behind the Headlines: British Terror in Ireland, Interview with Anne Cadwallader

    in History

    This week on Behind the Headlines, we're interviewing British journalist, author and human rights advocate Anne Cadwallader about UK government collusion with terrorism in Ireland.


    Cadwallader is a former BBC and RTE journalist who has written extensively on the Northern Ireland conflict for media outlets like Ireland on Sunday, the New York Irish Echo, Reuters News Agency, and others. Using her deep understanding of the conflict, she has dedicated herself to helping bereaved families discover more about the circumstances in which their relatives were killed, and has campaigned for an Agreed Truth Recovery Process for all those who lost family members during 'The Troubles’.

    To this end, Anne has worked with the now-suspended Historical Enquiries Team, the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland, and the Serious Crime Review Team of the Police Service of Northern Ireland. Perhaps her most important work however has been as a researcher with the Pat Finucane Center (PFC), an Armagh-based human rights advocacy and lobbying organisation. One of the core activities of the PFC is to research and document individual cases of death during the conflict.


    As a result of her work in this regard, Anne wrote the book Lethal Allies: British Collusion in Ireland, published by Mercier Press of Cork in October 2013. This ground-breaking work, which lays bare the fact of British collusion in Ireland, has sold 17,000 copies to date, and has been reprinted seven times. Join us this Sunday August 2nd, from 2-4pm EST / 8-10pm CET / 7-9pm GMT, for an interview you won't hear or see on British mainstream media.

    in Art

    This Thursday, July 30th, 2015 at 3 p.m. PST on MetalSmith BenchTalk, we will be re-airing one of our favorite past episodes with guest Robert Liu, Editor Ornament Magazine. 


     


    About Robert: Robert Kung Shan Liu was born in Rome in 1938 and immigrated to the US from China after World War II with his mother and 4 siblings. Trained as an ethologist and ichthyologist, the Dr. Liu received his Ph.D. from the UCLA where he worked on experimental gerontology and immunology in the Dept. of Pathology, School of Medicine until 1975. Founder of the magazine "The Bead Journal" in 1974, Dr. Liu and his wife Carolyn L.E. Benesh are publishers and coeditors of its successor, "Ornament" since 1978. 


     


    Self-trained as a jeweler and photographer, he has written extensively on ancient, ethnic and contemporary personal adornment, as well as gerontology, ichthyology (Ichthyology [from Greek] is the branch of zoology devoted to the study of fish), animal behavior, military technology, and construction equipment. Liu started collecting and researching beads in 1972, in addition to designing jewelry that incorporated beads and other artifacts. In 1995 Dr. Liu wrote/published what is considered to be the most thorough resource on beads "Collectible Beads: A Universal Aesthetic". Check out his book on Amazon: http://bit.ly/7ORn5L.
