Tune in to Uhuru Radio live on Sunday for news, analysis and culture
This Sunday, November 27, 2011, tune in to UhuruRadio.com for live and dynamic discussions of our world in crisis and transition. You can listen over the internet, or through your phone. Visit UhuruRadio.com for phone listening numbers. Uhuru Radio brings you the online voices of African revolutionaries and our allies struggling all over the world for liberation and justice.

Beginning at 10:00 a.m., U.S. Eastern Time (-5 UTC), hear a dynamic discussion with African Socialist International Chairman Omali Yeshitela as he responds to questions and comments from the audience at the "Day in Solidarity with African People", held November 11, 2011 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

This annual fundraising event was coordinated by the African People's Solidarity Committee, an organization working under the direct leadership of the African People's Socialist Party to build principled solidarity from Euro-Americans and other allies of the African liberation struggle.

Questions from the audience focussed largely on the U.S. "Occupy Movement" and it's relationship to, or significance for. the movements of African and other colonized peoples.

Then at 11:00 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time, Uhuru News Director and host of Uhuru Radio's "Africa Live" show Nyabinga Dzimbahwe will talk live with comrades from the Democratic Republic of Congo analyzing the upcoming elections there. He will also discuss the current struggles taking place in Somalia in resistance against the U.S.-led imperialist attacks on that region.

Listeners are encouraged to participate in this live discussion by calling in via Skype (id = uhururatio), via the phone (North American callers dial 727-824-5700) or email to  dj@uhururadio.com.

At 1:00 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time, African People's Solidarity Committee Chairwoman Penny Hess will discuss current events and imperialist attacks in the Middle East, the economic crisis threatening the Eurozone, and the burgeoning prison economy in the U.S.

Finally, at 2:00 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time, Norman Richmond, aka Jalali will offer a dynamic program of cultural upliftment. This well-traveled music historian hosts the weekly Uhuru Radio show "Diasporic Music", bringing his vast knowledge of the music industry and musicians - both on stage and behind the scenes.

This week, Jalali will share a tribute to Wynton Kelly and shine the spotlight on Clevel James of the LIMERS. Kelly was an A-List Musician. He was a jazz pianist, born in New York City (December 2, 1931). He died in Toronto, Canada, on April 12, 1971 from an epileptic seizure. An African born in the United States, his father was from Jamaica and his mother from Trinidad and Tobago. He is perhaps best known for working with trumpeter Miles Davis from 1959-1962 and saxophonist John Coltrane.

Clevil James is the founder of the LIMERS. In The Caribbean, LIMERS were originally people who hung out on the street corner and discussed everything from the latest sports score to the current parliamentary debate. Their primary purpose is to provide a forum for cultural exchange, with special emphasis on the Calypso art form. Jalali provides an All-African mix of music and politics. "Diasporic Music" is music made in the West, but not of the West.

Listeners are encouraged to participate in the Diasporic Music show, calling or writing in with your comments and questions for host Jalali.
