We put the spotlight on Solomon Burke, who joined the ancestors at 70. We hear from Ayuko Babu, the Executive Director of the Pan African Film Festival, continuing his discussion of Dick Griffey's contribution to Africa and Africans. Griffey was founder of Solar Records, the L.A.-based label, once touted as "the Motown of the 80s". He discovered L.A. Reid and Babyface and Lakeside. He helped put the Whispers on the map. We talk talk with Itah Sadu, co-owner of A Different Book List, Toronto's top Afrocentric book store. Plus regular segment with current commentaries from Mumia Abu-Jamal.
