Listen to the Sun. Oct. 17, 2021 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 heightening unrest in the Republic of Sudan over the future of the country; Tunisia has warned other nations not to interfere in its internal affairs; there has been a discovery of mass graves in the embattled neo-colonial North African state of Libya; and the Republic of Namibia is relaxing some of its restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the second and third hours we again focus on the history and legacy of the Black Panther Party on the 55th anniversary of its founding. We review two important speeches delivered in the state of California during 1966 and 1968. Stokely Carmichael, the then Chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), was the co-founder of the original Black Panther Party in Lowndnes County, Alabama during 1965-66. He delivered an address on Oct. 29, 1966 at the University of California at Berkely campus explaining the concept of Black Power while outlining the ideas behind the creation of the Black Panther Party. Finally, we hear Eldridge Cleaver, then Minister of Information of the Black Panther Party and the 1968 presidential candidate for the Peace and Freedom Party. The speech was delivered at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) on Oct. 4, 1968.
