Pan-African Journal: Special Worldwide Radio Broadcast for Sun. March 13, 2016--Hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe 
Listen to this special edition of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire.

The broadcast features our regular PANW reports with dispatches on developments surrounding the diamond sector in Zimbabwe where a consolidation of mining and trade is underway; the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has visited refugees in the Western Sahara who are seeking independence from Morocco; Burundian officials are claiming a Rwandan spy has been arrested inside the country which has been plagued by internal political unrest and violence over the last ten months; and South African President Jacob Zuma has paid a state visit to the West African state of Nigeria aimed at addressing tensions emanating from economic relations between the continent's two largest economies.

In the second and third hours we continue our month-long commemoration of International Women's History with an examination of the intersection between the struggle against African slavery and women's rights in the United States.

Finally a series of speeches from the late widow of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Coretta Scott King, reveals her as a political figure who continued the legacy of the martyred Civil Rights and peace activists.
