Listen to this edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. We will feature our regular PANW reports focusing on the current plot within the Michigan state legislature to draft yet another scheme to further destroy public education in the city of Detroit amid threats against teachers and parents related to exposure of deplorable conditions within system buildings; further tests in Flint reveal the extensive damage done to the majority African American population and others after the right-wing multi-millionaire Gov. Rick Snyder poisoned the water utilized by the city's 100,000 residents; the African Union is sending a panel to Burundi in an effort to resolve the internal political crisis while accusations of human rights violations by Bujumbura are leveled as the administration of President Pierre Nkurunziza says Rwanda is facilitating the training of rebels in refugee camps; Libya is awaiting yet another imperialist intervention while the so-called Islamic state spreads its influence within the embattled North African state.

DuBois in the development of African and African American historical and social scientific studies.
The Sickle-Cell Anemia Research Foundation has raised the consciousness ofthe community, first by giving it the basic facts about the disease, and second by bringing to its attention the neglect of the disease in medical research. The community has learned through the foundation 's program that the people themselves can organize and find solutions to the problems that daily affect their survival. HUEY P. NEWTON The 63rd session of the UN General Assembly in December 2008 adopted a resolution on the “recognition of sickle-cell anaemia as a public health problem,” and urged Member States and UN organizations to raise awareness of SCD on June 19 of each year.21 Despite the fact that the UN has called for global efforts “to bring the disease out of the shadows,” relatively little attention has been given to assessing the burden of SCD and how to reduce it in Africa, where about 85% of children with SCD are born.22 In 2010, the WHO Regional Office for Africa proposed a SCD strategy in official recognition of the fact that this disease is an important cause of child mortality in many African countries.23 Enough is already known to justify investment in public health SCD programs, such as those already in place for other conditions (e.g., HIV or malaria), for promoting widespread screening, health education, and treatment to prevent or manage SCD complications.
"SICKLE-CELL ANEMIA RESEARCH FOUNDATION
Established by the Black Panther party in 1971to test and create a cure for sickle-cell anemia ( a deadly blood disease that affects primarily Black Americans), the Sickle-Cell Anemia Research Foundation informs people about sickle-cell anemia and maintains a national advisory committee of doctors to research this crippling disease.
In conjunction with the People’s Free Medical Research Health Clinics the Sickle -Cell Anemia Research Foundation to date has tested nearly half a million people throughout the country in the last three years.
While more research is needed to discover treatment and a cure for the disease, people must first be informed about it and tested to see if they have it or its side effects. To accomplish this, the Sickle -Cell Anemia Research Foundation publishes and disseminates brochures and other printed materials with facts about sickle-cell anemia." HUEY P. NEWTON "The Black Panther Party Service to the People Programs
Sickle cell anemia (sickle cell disease) is a disorder of the blood caused by an inherited abnormal hemoglobin (the oxygen-carrying protein within the red blood cells). The abnormal hemoglobin causes distorted (sickled) red blood cells. The sickled red blood cells are fragile and prone to rupture. When the number of red blood cells decreases from rupture (hemolysis), anemia is the result. This condition is referred to as sickle cell anemia. The irregular sickled cells can also block blood vessels causing tissue and organ damage and pain.

LIVE Ghost Box Session reaching out to Reeva Steenkamp, victim by the hands of her husband Oscar Pistorius.
Early on Valentine's Day morning, Oscar Pistorius, the double-amputee Olympian who is arguably South Africa's biggest sporting star, shot through a bathroom door at his home in Pretoria and killed his girlfriend, 29-year-old model and law school graduate Reeva Steenkamp. Was it cold-blooded murder, as police claim, or did Pistorius think he was shooting at an intruder?
South African athlete Oscar Pistorius was charged with murder after shooting dead his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp on 14 February 2013. In September 2014, after a six-month trial, he was found not guilty of murder but guilty of culpable homicide.
