African Perspectives  speak with Gerald Horne about the current unrest in South Sudan.  The conflict has been addressed in mainstream media as “ethnic conflict,” though this is a misrepresentation that does not consider the historical context of the conflict.  We also speak with Dr. Horne about the peace talks and the larger context of the the Sudan/South Sudan border conflict.

Dr. Gerald Horne currently holds the John J. and Rebecca Moores Chair of History and African American Studies at the UniversiHORNE, GERALD 10/2/98ty of Houston.  In the 1980’s he was a mediator of the civil war in Sudan.  Dr. Horne is the author of over 20 books, most recently “Mau Mau in Harlem?

11:30am Black Agenda Report  


White Racism Undermined Anti-Poverty Effort

“White backlash” scuttled some War on Poverty programs, including job training for minorities in the skilled trades. White workers whose union hiring halls had “for decades hired their sons, their nephews” became Reagan Democrats, said Jill Quadango, professor of sociology at Florida State University and author of The Color of Welfare: How Racism Undermined the War on Poverty. White union members saw minority trainees as “a direct threat to their prerogative to choose who was hired.”


A new book reveals the identities of three people who broke into an FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania, in 1971, and made off with files on the bureau’s COINTELPRO campaign against Blacks and the Left. Mumia Abu Jamal, America’s best-known political prisoner, recalled learning of the revelations, shortly after he left the Black Panther Party. “To read about people who you’ve known for years, who were FBI informants, was absolutely mindblowing,” Abu Jamal told Heidi Boghosian, executive director of the National Lawyers Guild and host of WBAI Radio’s Law and Disorder program.

Socialism Needed-Quickly

Capitalism “is utterly irrational, it’s out of control, and unless we democratically organize and plan this economy, they’re going to kill us, literally, through climate change,” said Michael Steven Smith, co-editor ofImagine: Living in a Socialist USA. The new book contains 31 essays by a wide range of Left activists and writers.

A Black Agenda Radio commentary by BAR Managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

$10.10 an hour isn’t much of a raise, but it’s better than a sharp stick in the eye. The truth is that rhetoric about “passing a jobs bill”, “universal pre-K” and raising the minimum wage are things Democrats dust off to reinforce their brand, only when when Republicans are in a position to block them. That makes them branding exercises, not political deeds they intend to accomplish.

Amiri Baraka Eulogized by His Son

“My father was – IS – a revolutionary,” said Ras Baraka, in his eulogy for famed poet/activist Amiri Baraka, who died at age 79 in Newark, New Jersey. City councilman Ras Baraka is running for mayor of Newark.
