Pan-African Journal: Special Worldwide Radio Broadcast, June 21, 2020

Listen to the Sun. June 21, 2020 special 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 continuing demonstrations against racism and police brutality around the United States; the Cuban government participated vigorously in the recently-held United Nations Human Rights Council debate on racism in the U.S.; there has been greater cooperation within the Caribbean region in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic; and the Zimbabwe government has presented a plan for the reopening of schools since the beginning of the lockdown. In the second hour we hear an update from Republic of South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa on the efforts to contain the pandemic after reducing restrictions in the society. Finally we look back five decades through an extensive interview with Dr. Huey P. Newton on August 11, 1970. The interview was conducted just five days after he was released on appeal bond from prison in California. Many of the same questions which were paramount in the orientation of the Black Panther Party in that period are still relevant in the 21st century.
