    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

    "The SAFE Program also aims to unite Black and poor communities by actively recruiting and hiring a number of our youth to help implement these much-needed services. Both drivers and escorts will be recruited from among the young and unemployed in our community, a strategythat at the same time will cut down the number of youth who would consider snatching a pocket­ book just to get a little change. In addition, drivers and escorts will be given extensive training in their respective fields, with both groups receiving inten­sive safety and FIRST-aid instruction.


    State, federal, and local funding of the SAFE Program will also mean addi­tional transportation-at least five vans with a seating capacity of twelve per­ sons each, plus the hiring ofa full-time program director and assistants. All totaled, the proposed annual budget for the SAFE Program comes to slightly less than two hundred thousand dollars ($195,530).


    E orts to acquire funds for the SAFE Program have not yet been success­ful. A formal proposal has been presented before Oakland Model Cities, a fed­erally funded poverty program, but that agency has made no commitment. A portion of Oakland's $4.5 million in revenue-sharing funds has been suggested for the SAFE Program, but the city administrators have been typically mum. Complete and adequate funding for the SAFE Program was, in fact, an integral part ofthe Seale-Brown Fourteen-Point Program to Rebuild Oakland in the 1973 campaign and, far from being abandoned, it will be included in initiatives and referendums.


    The SAFE funding proposal, like the program itself, is an argument for our protection instead of our abuse by public service agencies, which theoreti­ cally function on our behalf. SAFE is a simple but basic program designed to help and secure the lives of a very important yet often forgotten segment of our communities: the older people." HUEY P. NEWTON

The program features our regular PANW report with dispatches on the rapidly developing situation involving the water crisis in Flint; in Chicago a police officer who killed an African American is suing the family saying he suffered trauma as a result of opposition to his actions; the Sudan government is participating in miliary manuevers designed to advance Saudi-GCC objectives in Yemen; South Sudan is hiring 20,000 teachers from the Southern African state of Zimbabwe; and Somalian authorities say that a bomb ripped through a jet plane that killed one person. In the second and third hours we continue our monthlong tribute to African American History Month with an examination of the Dr. W.E.B. DuBois papers which were dedicated at the University of Massuchusetts at Amherst iin 1980.

    What Are the Benefits of an Afrikan Centered Education

    in School

     What would be the benefits of changing and/or infusing an African Centered Education into the public schools of Philadelphia and abandoning the eurocentric pedagogy?  Over 50% of the student population in Philadelphia are Afrikan scholars born in America and according to the most recent stastics found in the The Notebook, (a newspaper publication that deals with the Philadelphia public schools), "Pennsylvania is one of 20 states in which the African American graduation rate is below 66 percent, and one of 16 states in which the Latino graduation rate is below 66 percent (both are 65 percent). The gap between White and Black graduation rates and White and Latino graduation rates is, in both cases, 23 percentage points. The White graduation rate in Pennsylvania now stands at 88 percent." In the opinion of Afrikan an African Centered core curriculum is not only necessary, it is long over due.  


    My special guest this evening is Dr. Jalaal Hayes, a born and raised scholar of North Philadelphia who graduated high school at 15 and college at 18, (Lincoln University), and became the youngest man to earn a Ph.D from Delaware State Universuty at the age of 22. This amazing brother's doctorate is in chemistry, and instead of going for six figures he is a teacher in one of South Philadelphia's public neighborhood charter high schools. He currently has his own tutoring company. I hope you will join us as Dr. Jalaal Hayes weighs in on the state of the Philadelphia public school system from a first person Afrikan perspective.

    Brett Favre makes NFL Hall of Fame on first ballot and heads the class of 2016

    in Sports

    Brett Favre leads the NFL Hall of Fame class for 2016. Favre was voted in on the first ballot, and becomes the 24th Green Bay Packer to be selected. The Chicago Bears lead all teams with 27 players enshrined. The class of 2016 will enshrine eight people that includes one owner, one coach, two quarterbacks (including Favre), a wide receiver, two offensive lineman, and one defensive player.


    The late Ken Stabler joins Favre at the quarterback position. Stabler known as the "Snake" passed away last July from cancer. He led the Oakland Raiders to the Lombardi Trophy in 1977. Owner Edward DeBartolo Jr will also be enshrined for his contributions to the NFL. Tony Dungy became the first African-American to win a Super Bowl. Marvin Harrison still holds the single season reception record of 143 and was a member of Dungy's Super Bowl winning team. Orlando Pace was a giant among men on the offensive line and is joined by the late Dick Stanfel who played for the Detroit Lions. With Stanfel being elected to the Hall of Fame, Packer fans may be shaking their head wondering why the great Jerry Kramer still has not received his validation. Finally, the lone defensive player elected was Kevin Greene. Greene recorded 160 sacks while playing for four teams. He started his career in 1985 with the Los Angeles Rams and ended his 15 year career in Carolina.
