Tune in to history in the making this Friday, December 2, as African Sun Times publisher, Dr. Chika Onyeani interviews Ambassador Dr. Dudley Thompson, QC., No.1 Pan-Africanist in the world. He defended late (great) President Jomo Kenyatta of Kenya during the Mau-Mau trials, and is President of the World African Diaspora Union (WADU). The interview is going to be live on "StraightTalk with Chika Onyeani on AllAfricaRadio," WPAT-AM 930, Friday night, December 2 at 12 midnight.
Kenya achieved her independence from British mis-rule on December 12, 1963, and will be celebrating their big 5-0 in 2013. For those of you who may not be totally aware, Kenya actively fought for her independence, by forming a fierce group of warriors called the MauMaus. Just the very word struck fear and a yellow streak down the back of many a British colonial monster. They had guns, weapons and a knowledge of guerilla warfare that put many a Viet Cong to shame. And they KICKED BUTT big time. Jomo Kenyatta, also called "Flaming Spear" was their leader, but truth be told, as with the Japanese, everyone was a leader unto themselves. Treachery met with death, especially if a Black person was caught fraternizing with the enemy (i.e. white, european settlers). They wanted them off their land and they meant to take Kenya back by any means necessary. And that's just what they did. they fought so hard and so consistently, that even when the Brits had arrested and imprisoned Jomo Kenyatta, they did not stop fighting, but became more and more intense and determined. For the MauMau, freedom was a non-negotiable item.
These are very exciting times for those of us in the 6th Diasporan Region of Africa, because we are in somewhat similar situations now. We have to make our reparations and our independence within this country a non-negotiable item. Not fighting, per se, a battle for the hearts, minds, spirits and well being of every Black man, woman and child in this country, and anywhere else we reside.
And what greater way of hearing about how it was affected first hand, than to listen in on the discourse between Drs. Onyeani and Thompson. So regardless of where you are, or how hard you're partying, if you are an ECLECTICALLY BLACK MAN OR WOMAN of CONSCIOUSNESS, you will definitely want to tune in to WPAT-AM 930, or log-on to www.wpat930am.com and listen live from anywhere throughout the world.

Kenyatta was definitely one of my personal heroes. As a kid we heard a great deal about his exploits. He was an African Superhero. And I have always had a great deal of admiration for my Kenyan brothers and sisters because they stood up and fought against european oppression. Kenyatta went on to be Kenya's first president.
The upcoming interview should be very interesting indeed.
One of the key sponsors is the African Sun Times, Africa's No.1 weekly newspaper in America, and acclaimed by the African Union (OAU 2001) as "Champion of the African Agenda in America."

Per Chika A. Onyeani, Publisher/Editor-in-Chief: "It is not what you call me, but what I answer to, that matters most" - Capitalist Nigger: The Road to Success, Onyeani's internationally acclaimed No. 1 bestselling book.
Also if you haven't read either of Dr. Onyeani's publications, you must make it your business to do so:"The Broederbond Conspiracy," www.thebroederbondconspiracy.com or www.theblackjamesbond.com, or "The Capitalist Nigger" you really should. They have so much pivotal information of importance for us all.
Did I mention that I wrote for the African Sun Times for 12 years, and it's the best paper on Africa for Africans in America, ever!! I still do special features for them from time to time, but whether you're African from Africa or African American, there is something for everyone.
Stay Blessed &
