The full iMiXWHATiLiKE Killer Bs Squad was on hand to pay tribute to Cheikh Anta Diop, Frantz Fanon and all those in struggle against police violence and imposed inequalities. We did this in the context of a tribute to the 1974 UNESCO Conference on Ancient Egypt at which Cheikh Anta Diop and Theophile Obenga successfully defended the fact that Egypt (Kemet) was an inner-African, intra-African, sub-Saharan African, Black African civilization whose contributions to the world continue to be omitted or distorted (see Exodus 2014). We also honored this as the week in 1961 where we lost Frantz Fanon, the equally legendary African revolutionary, scholar and physician. We aired audio from protests in suburbia, world premiered new music from The Cornel West Theory, heard from Les Nubians, and rocked an instant classic G-Unit response to the police murder of Eric Garner. All this, plus audience calls and more in this edition of iMiXWHATiLiKE!
