An hard-hitting and penetrating radio broadcast called the Pan-African Journal is an audio news magazine brought to an international audience on a weekly basis. Since there is an inherent bias related to coverage of the affairs of African people inside the continent and abroad, we are very enthusiastic about bringing this program to our listeners every week.

This week the focus was primarily on the 51st anniversary of the formation of the Organization of African Unity (OAU), the predecessor of the current African Union (AU) which has 54-member states.

Since the 1960s, the African Revolution has made tremendous gains by defeating white settler-colonialism and classic colonialism in Africa. Nonetheless, there is the phenomena of neo-colonialism, which Dr. Kwame Nkrumah defined eloquently in his 1965 book "Neo-Colonialism: The Last Stage of Imperialism."

The book was such an indictment of United States imperialism that it drew the ire of the Johnson administration. A letter of protest was sent to the Ghana embassy in Washington and just four months after the book was published, Nkrumah was overthrown in a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) coordinated military and police coup on Feb. 24, 1966.

This program features our regular Pan-African News Wire segment bringing you some of the most updated and advanced information on the affairs of the Continent, the Diaspora and indeed the world.
