The program features our regular PANW reports with dispatches on events surrounding the pledge by South African President Jacob Zuma to pay some of the costs related to upgrades on his residence at Nkandla; there has been another death associated with the Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in Liberia months after the West African state was delcared free of the outbreak by the World Health Organization (WHO); the jobless rate in the United States rose by one-tenth of a percent during the month of March; and thousands of members of the Chicago Teachers Union staged a one-day strike along with mass demonstration through downtown demanding equitable salaries and working conditions.

In the second and third hours we will commemorate the 48th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Memphis, Tennessee on April 4, 1968.

During the course of these segments we focus on King's growing opposition to the war of genocide waged by the U.S. government against the people of Vietnam in 1967-68 along with one of his last sermons delivered on March 31, 1968 just five days before his martyrdom.
