We feature our regular PANW report with dispatches on the United States President Barack Obama's visit to the revolutionary Caribbean island-nation of Cuba; the European Union migrant crisis has taken on a new dimension with the attempt to halt movement from North Africa and the Middle East to Greece; the Pentagon has announced a plan for the escalation of troop presence in Iraq; and one of the rival regimes occupying the capital of Libya has delcared a state of emergency amid reports that the so-called "unity government" had entered Tripoli in order to assume control of the neo-colonial junta.

In the second hour we look at the history of the Cuban Revolution in the aftermath of the state visit by Obama to the country, the first for a U.S. president since 1928.

The final hour examines the life and contributions of African American woman singer Ruby Elzy of Mississippi.
