“Today Europe celebrates the 75th anniversary of victory in Europe - VE Day, the end of World War II in Europe (although the war in Asia and the Pacific was to continue).⁣

Now is also a time to recognise the efforts of those of African descent who fought on Europe’s soil to aid the allied forces victory over Germany and their allies. ⁣

Many Africans fought across different continents during World War II, including Europe, Africa, and Asia. There were many who volunteered, but also many who were forced to fight for their colonial masters.⁣

Their participation was not limited to support roles – as sometimes suggested. They also more than often fought bravely as active service people, and often received little or no recognition. ⁣

They were major contributors to Europe’s freedom, and the ensuing peace.⁣” via: @asoglobal

Supporters will gather virtually Friday to celebrate his 26th birthday and mourn Ahmaud Arbery, a Black man who was fatally shot while jogging in February, by putting on their sneakers and posting on social media to say #IRunWithMaud.

Arbery, 25, was jogging in a neighborhood outside Brunswick, Georgia, on February 23 when he was chased down by a former police officer and his son who were armed, authorities said. Arbery was shot after struggling with the son over his shotgun, according to a Glynn County Police report.

Jason Vaughn was Arbery's high school football coach. Now, he is asking supporters to honor Arbery by going for a socially distant run of 2.23 miles, representing the date of his death on Friday, which would have been his birthday. He asks that runners document their run and post it to social media under the hashtag #IRunWithMaud. #Justice4Ahmaud #AhmaudArbery

On May 6th 2020 - The Ministry of Health in Zambia 🇿🇲 has declared the late health worker Ian Muntambo a hero.

The ministry made this declaration yesterday in Mpika at a colourful funeral service in honor of 24 year old biomedical lab technician Ian Muntambo of Zambezi.

Muntambo was one of the four persons who perished in a Power Tools bus accident that plunged into Manyinga River by the Mundanya bridge in North Western Province on its way to Solwezi from Zambezi.

Muntambo, a civil servant, was transporting COVID19 samples in a public bus, an action that Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya said was normal. Minister Chilufya said Ministry of Health vehicles were busy elsewhere and hence Muntambo could not be ferried to Lusaka.

However, at Muntambo's funeral scores of expensive Ministry of Health 4x4s were on hand to receive his body which was flown by the Zambia Airforce.

Muntambo in his death was able to enjoy services that in his entire working life he did not enjoy.

It is unknown how much his family and loved ones would be compensated for the loss of their 24 year old loved one who had he not died was expected to work for 41 years for the Zambian government before retiring.

Others who perished in this Power Tools bus accident included the bus driver from Kitwe, two ladies from Kabompo and Zambezi.

Legendary Tony Allen, Pioneering Afrobeat Drummer, Dead at 79
“Without Tony Allen, there would be no Afrobeat,” Fela Kuti once said of legendary Africa 70.
.
.
The pioneering drummer who helped define Afrobeat during his tenure with Fela Kuti, died Thursday at the age of 79. Rolling Stone has confirmed Allen’s death, yet a cause of death was not immediately available. Sahara Reporters first reported that Allen died in Paris.
“We don’t know the exact cause of death,” Allen’s manager Eric Trosset told France 24. “He was in great shape; it was quite sudden. I spoke to him at 1:00 pm, then two hours later he was sick and taken to Pompidou hospital where he died.”
As a member of Kuti’s band Africa 70, Allen helped revolutionize the art of drumming, anchoring and propelling classic albums like 1973’s Gentleman, 1975’s Expensive Sh*t, and the Afrobeat legend’s most enduring work, 1976’s Zombie. Each release depended on Allen’s slippery, ferocious, polyrhythmic grooves. “Without Tony Allen, there would be no Afrobeat,” Kuti once said. Damon Albarn and Brian Eno were also famously enamored with Allen’s playing; Eno called him “one of the great musicians of the 20th century — and the 21st.” Swipe for a clip from Tony Allen x @questlove collaboration Afro Picks from 2011.

Rest in Peace to the legend #TonyAllen

Zambian President Edgar Lungu on Tuesday paid tribute to former leader Kenneth Kaunda

Zambian President Edgar Lungu on Tuesday paid tribute to former leader Kenneth Kaunda, one of Africa's foremost liberation icons, on his 96th birthday anniversary.

The Zambian leader said he admires Kaunda's gallant for the country's independence struggle and for the fight for the liberation of other countries in southern Africa.

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa, who is also African Union (AU) chairperson, commended Kaunda for his contribution to the struggle for independence in Africa. He said the former president has continued to be a motivating factor to the current leadership in Africa.

Kaunda ruled Zambia from 1964 when the country got independence to 1991. #KennethKaunda #BlackHistory

#GoneTooSoon BBC journalist Hanna Yusuf, whose recent work included an investigation into working conditions at Costa Coffee stores, has died aged 27. She wrote for the BBC News website, and had also worked as a TV news producer. Hanna spoke six languages, including Somali and Arabic, and worked with, among others, whistleblowers and victims of serious crime. Hanna started at the BBC as a researcher on the News at Six and Ten in May 2017, before moving to the BBC News Channel and News at One and the website. Before joining the BBC, Hanna wrote for publications including the Guardian, the Independent, the Times, the Muslim News, the Pool and Grazia Magazine. In 2015, she created a video for the Guardian about her decision to wear the hijab at the time, saying "it has nothing to do with oppression. It's a feminist statement", which was picked up by other websites including Teen Vogue and Everyday Feminism. Born in Somalia 🇸🇴 in 1992, she received a Scott Trust bursary to do an MA in newspaper journalism at City, University of London in 2017, following her degree at Queen Mary, University of London. In a statement, Hanna's family said the death of their "beloved daughter, sister and niece" had come as a shock and asked for privacy. "While we mourn her loss, we hope that Hanna's legacy will serve as an inspiration and beacon to her fellow colleagues and to her community and her meaningful memory and the people she has touched for many years lives on," they said. Our condolences to the family, Hanna was an important voice and she will be missed. 💙 via: @bbc @amplifyafrica
