SummaryThis week, Nyabinga Dzimbahwe plays a presentation made by APSP Chairman Omali Yeshitela at the African Liberation Day event held by the African People's Socialist Party (APSP) in 1986 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This African Liberation Day was held under the slogan "Reinforcements are on the way!" the year after the Philadelphia government dropped a bomb on the African community. Nyabinga also interviews Kobina Bantushango who is leading up the work to build the African Internationalist Student Organization, the student wing of the APSP. He also plays a presentation made by Chairman Omali Yeshitela at ALD in 1973 in Gainesville, Florida, at a time that Yeshitela was one of the leaders of the ALD National Coordinating Committee that built the first ALD in the U.S. one year earlier.
