Topics: Kwame Nkrumah's Scientific and Ideological Contribution to Liberation; and Voices in Defense of Immigrants' and Workers' Rights
Topics and Guests: On May 1st—May Day—thousands marched against the United States unfair labor and immigrant policies—particularly the current administration’s policies. In Washington, DC the march was billed as “Immigrants and Workers March.” The march took place from Dupont Circle to Lafayette Square opposite the White House. Today AfricaNow! airs conversations at the march with Ms. Glova Scott of the Socialist Workers Party; and Mr. Behailu Weldeyohannes, Community Organizer of African Communities Together. Ms. Scott emphasized how immigrants have rejuvenated May Day in the U.S. and the need for a working-class party. Mr. Behailu Weldeyohannes focused on the challenges of the African immigrant community under the current U.S. administration.
As African Liberation Day (which is on May 25) draws near, AfricaNow! today features the scientific and ideological contribution to liberation of a pioneer in the African World freedom struggle—Kwame Nkrumah. Kwame Nkrumah’s scientific and ideological contribution to liberation is displayed in Dr. Kofi Kiss Dompere’s latest books: The Theory of Categorial Conversion: Rational Foundations of Nkrumaism in Socio-natural Systemicity and Complexity and The Theory of Philosophical Consciencism: Practice Foundations of Nkrumaism in Social Systemicity. On May 9 Howard University’s Center for African Studies and Department of Economics hosted a book launch and presentation by Dr. Dompere.
