This program features our regular PANW reports with dispatches on the recently-held controversial presidential elections in the Central African state of Burundi where incumbent leader Pierre Nkurunziza has been re-elected amid protest and a boycott by opposition parties; the situation in Greece is not improving with anxiety increasing over yet another unfavorable debt re-scheduling by the European Central Bank and other international financial institutions; in Yemen pro-Saudi Arabian and GCC forces backed by the United States are claiming a strategic victory in the southern port city of Aden amid ongoing clashes and a humanitarian crisis; and Michigan Civil Rights activist and political prisoner Rev. Edward Pinkney has filed an appeal against his unjust conviction stemming from a Mayoral recall campaign in Benton Harbor during 2014.

In our second hour we present two recent interviews with host Abayomi Azikiwe: one on the significance of the lowering of the confederate flag in South Carolina conducted by Radio 786 in Cape Town, South Africa and the other broadcast by KBOO in Portland, Oregon examining what's behind the Obama visit to Kenya and Ethiopia.

The final hour continues the examination of the literary contributions of African people this time focusing on the legacy of woman writer and anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston during the 20th century.
