Episode 21: Race Hustlers Part II – Dr. Umar, the PayPal Prince of Pan-Afrikanism

Thursday, January 14th 2021 | 00:57:30

Part II of Race Hustlers features a new huckster: Dr. Umar Johnson – the self proclaimed Prince of Pan-Afrikanism and "most influential Black scholar in the world." While not yet convicted by a court of law, citizen journalists and Black media outlets have been speculating on and interrogating this man for years about his beliefs, his credentials, and the school that Dr. Umar has been fundraising for for nearly a decade. Will the Frederick Douglass Marcus Garvey RBG Leadership Academy for Black Boys ever materialize or is it just another con-artist's ruse to pocket good faith donations?
