The program will feature our regular PANW report with dispatches on developments in South Africa where negotiations with the United States has resulted in an agreement to continue Pretoria's participation in the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) program after differences surfaced over the importation of US meat products into the country; China and Tanzania are continuing their parternship in the areas of energy production in East Africa; the US is pushing for a resolution surrounding allegations of abuse of civilians by the United Nations peacekeeping forces in the Central African Republic; and the International Criminal Court is continuing its targeting of African leaders through the prosecution of former Democratic Republic of Congo Vice-President Jean Pierre Bemba in the Netherlands.

In the second hour we continue our focus on International Women's History Month with a segment on the African American women and work in the US.

Also we look at the contributions of anti-slavery warrior Harriet Tubman and early women's rights advocate Mary Church Terrell through a radio drama production first aired in 1948.
