QADDAFI FARRAKHAN

Bakari Kitwana speaks with Natalie Moore about the recent political crisis in Libya. Moore, a Chicago Public Radio reporter who last Fall hosted a blog from Libya, talks about the climate in Libya when she was there during Mu’ammar Qaddafi’s 41st anniversary celebration of his ascent to power, and gives an assessment on how radically things have changed over the last few months. Says Moore: “Believe Qaddafi when he says he is going to stay til the last drop of blood. He’s not going to go out like Ben Ali or Mubarak did. It’s going to be a rough and bloody road.”

In this interview Moore also reflects on Qaddafi’s past dealings with Louis Farrakhan and notorious Chicago gang leader Jeff Fort. Moore draws interesting parallels between Fort’s 1987 conviction for conspiring with Libya to commit domestic terrorism and current US War on Terror efforts as they affect young people of color locked out of America’s mainstream.

Natalie Moore is a Chicago Public Radio Reporter and the co-author of the new book (with Lance Williams) The Almighty Black P. Stone Nation: The Rise, Fall and Resurgence of an American Gang. In 2006 she co-authored (with Natalie Hopkinson the bestselling book Deconstructing Tyrone: A New Look at Black Masculinity in the Hip-Hop Generation.

Bakari Kitwana is CEO of Rap Sessions and author of the forthcoming Hip-Hop Activism in the Obama Era (Third World Press, 2011).
