Black August (2013) w Kali Akuno

We continued our tribute to the tradition of Black August this week by airing am important commentary on the subject by Mumia Abu-Jamal,* then hearing from veteran organizer with the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement Kali Akuno who is also a contributor to A Lie of Reinvention: Correcting Manning Marable’s Malcolm X (Black Classic Press, 2012).  And click here for our other Black August related posts!

*Initially intended for our on-air broadcast we’ve had to upload the stripped-down versions of these interviews so as to avoid any copyright conflicts with our audio hosts at Soundcloud (for my own thoughts on copyright please see I Mix What I Like: A Mixtape Manifesto).  We will be uploading more interviews and remaining parts of these interviews in the days to come.
