Listen to this special broadcast of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. May 25 represented the 51st anniversary of the formation of the Organization of African Unity (OAU), the predecessor of the African Union (AU).

This program also continues the commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the intervention of Malcolm X in Africa and the Middle East. Malcolm X broke with the Nation of Islam (NOI) beginning in December 1963 which was solidified in March of 1964.

Malcolm X went on hajj in April after forming the Muslim Mosque, Inc. He would later spend over four additional months in Africa and the Middle East between July and November of 1964.

As part of this tribute we will listen to a classic speech by Malcolm X in New York City just one month prior to his brutal and public assassination on Feb. 21, 1965.

Also we will pay tribute to the late General Gordon Baker, Jr. (1941-2014), a founder of the League of Revolutionary Black Workers (LRBW), who passed away in Detroit on May 18. Baker was eulogized on May 24 at UAW Local 600.

Our special guest for this segment is Norman (Otis) Richmond of Toronto, a broadcast journalist and former member of the League.
