We will feature our regular PANW reports with dispatches on the visit of United States President Barack Obama to East Africa; the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to the US just this last past week; and the questions still lingering surrounding the jail cell death of African American Sandra Bland in Texas.

In the second hour we will highlight an interview with Abayomi Azikiwe over KPFA radio in California analyzing the Obama visit to Kenya. Also in this hour we conclude our month-long focus on the literary contributions of African people presenting audio files on Frederick Douglass slave narratives and poems by Paul Lawrence Dunbar.

The final segment reviews the role of Reconstruction-era African American Senator Blanche K. Bruce of Mississippi through an archived radio documentary on his life and legacy. This story of Bruce's life is a dramatization broadcast over Chicago's NBC Radio in 1948 through a program entitled "Destination Freedom."
