Ajamu Baraka joined us to discuss his recent essay lamenting the participation of Barack Obama at this week’s 50th Anniversary March on Washington. Baraka describes Obama as a “negation” of the liberation movement and a false “symbol” that fraudulently attempts to unite a freedom movement with an anti-Black and capitalist state.
