Black Alliance For Peace Africa can’t demonstrate independence and power because the entire continent has a giant U.S. military boot on its neck. With reports each week of yet another Black victim of police violence, there is for many an ever-growing desperation. As activists search for a way forward, Africa’s plight does not find its way on to the movement agenda. But there is good reason to be concerned about what goes on in Africa. The problems there and the problems here are related. Africa has long been the focus of foreign exploitation of the continent’s land, resources, and people. . . .

At the beginning of this year, BBC World Histories Magazine asked historians to nominate the ‘greatest leader’ –someone who exercised power and had a positive impact on humanity – and to explore their achievements and legacy. More than 5,000 readers voted, and in second place, with 25 per cent of the vote is Amilcar Cabral, who as head of the African Party for the Independence of Guinea and Cape Verde (PAIGC), led his country to independence. What made Cabral great? Why must those who struggle for Pan-Africanism know and understand this man’s life, work and legacy? Let’s examine his contributions. . . .
The Reedus (Russian News Outlet) correspondent managed to talk to the head of one of the organizations participating in the Black Liberation movement. Commander-In-Chief of the Black Hammer Organization, Gazi Kodzo. This is an English translation of the interview. Reedus: Tell us about yourself and your organization. GK: My name is Gazi Kodzo. I am Commander-in-Chief of Black Hammer. The Black Hammer is an anti-colonial mass organization. Our organization consists only of Colonized people, non-white people: they are all either Poor or Proletarian.

This past week there was an extraordinary demonstration of bold militant action from professional athletes to speak out against police terror against the African masses. The National Basketball Association (NBA) called off its playoff games. Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Football League (NFL), Major League Soccer (MLS), individual tennis players, and even the National Hockey League (NHL) called off games, matches, and practices. As Sekou Ture told us years ago, these things happened because the athletes, being nothing more than conduits of the desires of the masses of people, felt compelled to act because the masses of people are . . .
