Pan-African Journal: Special Worldwide Radio Broadcast August 2, 2020 Edition

Listen to the Aug. 2, 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 a PANW report with dispatches on the recent tributes paid to Zimbabwe Minister of Agriculture Parrance Shiri; six people have been reportedly killed by an improvised explosive device in the West African state of Burkina Faso; South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has issued a statement in response to the half-million mark reached in the COVID-19 pandemic; and the Rwandan authorities announced the resumption of air travel with neighboring Kenya. In the second hour and third hours we continue our focus on the annual commemoration of Black August which acknowledges the struggle by African people against slavery, colonialism, neo-colonialism and imperialism. We also hear an archived interview with resistance historian Dr. Herbert Aptheker on the methodology utilized to reconstruct the African struggle for freedom. Finally, there is a classic lecture delivered by James Baldwin in 1963 after the release of his book entitled “The Fire Next Time.”
