This episode is hosted by Kenny and T. Today we have guest Milton Allimadi (https://twitter.com/allimadi). Ugandan born Milton Allimadi is a comitted Pan-African. He publishes Black Star News, hosts a weekly show on WBAI New York radio, and he’s an adjunct professor of African History at John Jay College. The new edition of his book “The Hearts of Darkness, How White Writers Created The Racist Image of Africa,” is forthcoming.

Allimadi believes everyone should add these books to their library: Things Fall Apart (Achebe), Decolonizing The Mind (Ngugi), How Europe Underdeveloped Africa (Rodney), The Black Jacobins (C.L.R. James), Accumulation on A World Scale (Amin), Neo-Colonialism The Last Stage of Imperialism (Nkrumah), The Autobiography of Malcolm X (with Alex Haley), and African Origins of Civilization (Diop).
