Welcome, to the radio magazine that brings you news, commentary and analysis from a Black Left perspective. Coming up: former Black Panthers celebrated the party’s 50 anniversary, in Oakland, California, where it all began; and, a Haitian political activist says Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, is the greater evil of the 2016 U.S. presidential contest. But first, It’s been 20 years since the start of the genocide in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a bloodbath that continues, provoked, according to United Nations reports, by U.S. allies in neighboring Rwanda and Uganda. The Friends of Congo noted the 20th anniversary of the genocide with an all-day teaching session in New York City. One of the speakers was Nita Evele, of the Congo Global Action Coalition. Hundreds of former members of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense gathered in Oakland, California, to mark the organization’s 50 th anniversary. The event saw four days of intense discussion on the burning issues that confront today’s Black liberation movement. The weekend also marked the 80th birthday of former Black Panther Party chairman and co-founder Bobby Seale, who was roasted and honored. Seale said, from the very beginning, he just wanted to put more Black people in elected office. If you are from Haiti, Bill and Hillary Clinton may look like the greater evils of the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Haitian community political activist Daoud Andre led a protest against New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, whose office has been investigating Donald Trump’s charitable organization. Andre says Schneiderman is showing his political bias by leaving Bill and Hillary Clinton’s multi-billion dollar, global fund-raising empire untouched.And that it’s for this edition of Black Agenda Radio. Be sure to visit us at BlackAgendaReport.com, where you’ll find a new and provocative issue, each Wednesday.
