We talk with Kumasi and Shaka, who were both locked down with Comrade George Jackson. The Los Angeles-based Kumasi and the Oakland-based Shaka are part of the Black August Organizing Committee. Also, joining in the discussion will be the Washington D.C.-based, Naji Mujahid of the Black August Planning Organization.

Kiilu Nyasha pointed out, "Primarily, August is the month we recall the great loss exacted upon our Black revolutionary movement with the assassination of George Jackson and his younger brother, the teen-aged Jonathan Jackson. Jonathan was martyred [in 1970] when he led the August 7th rebellion; George was martyred a year later, August 21."

We also talk with Rupert Charles Lewis, the author of "Walter Rodney's Intellectual and Political Thought". Lewis is an expert on Marcus Garvey who will discuss the Red, Black & Green flag, Garvey's use of the press and his relevance to this period. August 13th is the 90th anniversary of the origin of the Red Black and Green flag.Lewis' others works on Garvey are "Marcus Garvey:Anti - Colonial Champion", "Garvey: His Work and Impact" and "Garvey: Africa, Europe, the Americas".
