We would first like to thanks all of those in the listening audience whose contribution to Freedom Now during the recent completed fund drive.We realized a all time high of $4000.This means the continual survival of KPFK and Freedom Now . In particular Brother George Quant who is the godfather the Integrated Quantum Mediation technique who together with a group of us gave our personal testimonials from our over 30 years of mediation. We solicited a service, a product that we acutally practice and belived in.It was quite a heart felt solicitation.

Broth Obi Egbunna a young Nigerians journalist representing the Zimbabwe News
will present not only what is African Liberation Day but the current situation in Zimbabwe. In addition he will present his research on the interrelationship of many African in western hemisphere historical figures such as Dorothy Heights, Ida B,Wells, George Washington Carver, Toussaint L’Overture to ALD.
