Presidential Hopeful Dr. Cornel West Vows to Abolish Africom
Dr. Cornel West, a presidential hopeful, made a bold promise to Detroit residents during a gathering at Mama Akua House. He pledged to "get rid of Africom" as part of his foreign policy stance toward Africa, receiving applause from the audience. Africom, responsible for U.S. military operations in 53 African nations, is criticized for undermining progressive activities on the continent. West's commitment to this, along with his advocacy for Palestinians and other progressive policies like universal healthcare and free housing, has garnered support. The Center for Pan African Studies expresses support for West's presidential aspirations, seeing him as a potential disruptor of the status quo in Washington.

Mostly strangers, including a 16-year old swimmer, united to defend the life of a fellow Black man being viciously attacked by a racist White mob. Can pro-Black groups ever cooperate to defend and extend the interests of the Black community as the Montgomery heroes did?
