The program features our regular PANW report with dispatches on the international furor over the ban on millions from Muslim dominated states in North Africa and the Middle East by the Trump administration; the African Union is to decide on the new commission chair at its summit taking place this week; the UK government has denied a hearing to victims of the environmental damage done by the extraction of oil from Nigeria; and the West African state of Ghana has experienced an explosion at a local oil production facility.

In the second hour we review the Memphis sanitation workers strike of early 1968 which brought Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to the that Southern city leading to his assassination on April 4.

Finally we hear excerpts from the speeches of Coretta Scott King.
