After Chokwe Lumumba,
TRNN's Jaisal Noor and BAR's Glen Ford interview Kali Akuno on the ongoing legacy of Chokwe Lumumba Part 1 of 2.
The mayor of Jackson, Mississippi, Chokwe Lumumba, was laid to rest over the weekend, after passing away suddenly at the age of 66. Not one year into his first term, Chokwe was known as America's most revolutionary mayor. His work as an activist and attorney working to defend civil and human rights spanned more than four decades. He was a cofounder and member of the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement. As mayor, he laid out an ambitious plan for a fair development model that was both inclusive and environmentally sustainable.
