Pan-African Journal: Special Worldwide Radio Broadcast August 9, 2020 Edition

Listen to the Sun. Aug. 9, 2020 special edition of the Pan-African Journal: Worldwide Radio Broadcast hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. The program presents a PANW report with dispatches on the virtual celebrations of Heroes’ Day in the Southern African state of Zimbabwe; South Africa is commemorating Women’s Day acknowledging the mass demonstration of 20,000 African women in Pretoria on this date in 1956; the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has apologized for the use of a racial slur over their network in a recent news report; and people have been arrested in Louisville, Kentucky during demonstrations demanding the arrest and prosecution of the police officers and officials involved in the horrendous shooting death of African American woman-youth Breonna Taylor earlier this year. In the second hour we continue our focus on Black August with a re-examination of the life, times and contributions of anti-slavery fighter Harriet Tubman. Finally, we listen to the voices and ideas of leading figures in South Africa in honor of Women’s Day including President Cyril Ramaphosa.
