Interesting Facts You May Not Know About Patrice Lumumba

Patrice Lumumba: Poet, Revolutionary, and Freedom Fighter

PL6
Patrice Lumumba (July 2, 1925 –Jan. 17, 1961) was the first elected prime minister of the Republic of Congo. He ascended to power on June 30, 1960, the date of Congo’s independence from Belgium. Lumumba had a a vision of a united Congo with complete control over its economy and resources.

PL3
In December 1958, revolutionaries such as Lumumba, Shirley Graham DuBois, George Padmore and Kwame Nkrumah came together at the All-African Peoples Conference to plan a strategy for the total liberation of Africans and people of African descent worldwide. It was at the AAPC in Ghana that Lumumba became a known figure within liberation movement circles in Africa and the United States.


PL2
He wrote poems and essays such as May Our People Triumph and Dawn in the Heart of Africa for publication in Congolese journals, earning him acclaim nationally. PL1
In a 2001 report by the Belgian Commission, there had been previous U.S. and Belgian plots to kill Lumumba. Among them was a Central Intelligence Agency-sponsored attempt to poison him, which may have come on orders from U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Lumumba’s dream, however, was not accomplished. After his assassination on Jan. 17, 1961, Mobutu Sese Seko, a pro-Westerner, was installed and supported in office, primarily by Belgium and the United States. During his 30-plus-year reign, Congo amassed large debts, massive currency devaluations and civil unrest.


PL5
Lumumba’s legacy lives on. Countless streets, statues and buildings in countries such as Mali, Russia, Hungary and Cuba have been named in his honor. In 2003, the BBC reported that naming your child “Lumumba” in Africa was likely to give the child a head start in life.
PL7
After Lumumba’s assassination, protesters clashed with Belgian embassies and local police in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, and at Trafalgar Square in London. Protestors in London shouted and cheered as the speakers criticized the new Congo regime, and then began shouting “Down with Belgium” and “Down with the United Nations”.

PL8
Lumumba’s political philosophy remains relevant and is embraced as a symbol of African independence efforts. In the 2006 elections, a number of the running parties affiliated themselves with Lumumba’s political philosophy.
PL9
On June 28, 1964, U.S. human rights activist Malcolm X gave a speech at a rally of the Organization of Afro-American Unity (a movement he founded) at the Audubon Ballroom in New York City. During this speech, Malcolm X proclaimed “Lumumba [is] the greatest black man who ever walked the African continent. He didn’t fear anybody. He had those people so scared they had to kill him. They couldn’t buy him; they couldn’t frighten him; they couldn’t reach him.” 


PL11
His life and works have been celebrated through books and films. Lumumba is a 2000 film directed by Raoul Peck that focused on Lumumba in the months before and after the Republic of the Congo achieved independence. Africa’s Lost Leader (Life and Times) and The Assassination of Lumumba are perhaps the most popular books celebrating his life.
PL12
Lumumba’s last letter to his wife is written as if he knew he was going to die fighting for his country. He ends the letter with the phrase “Long live the Congo! Long live Africa.”

6 Billionaires You Didn’t Know Spent Millions to Oust Obama

obama adelson
Sheldon Adelson, Estimated Net Worth $37.1B
Sheldon Adelson, the billionaire behind the Las Vegas Sands casino empire, told Forbes in 2012 that he would be willing to do “whatever it takes” to dethrone President Obama. Including spending upwards of $100 million. Adelson’s total investments against Obama are unknown. According to Politico, an estimated $20 million to $30 million of the giving went to groups that do not disclose their donors and had not been reported before. Another $10 million went to Restore Our Future, paying for anti-Obama ads in swing states.
Adelson has maintained his rhetoric against Obama.


obama ken
Ken Griffin, Estimated Net Worth $5.2B
Billionaire Ken Griffin, who runs the Chicago-based Citadel, was filled with hometown pride when Sen. Barack Obama decided to run for president. The hedge fund manager invited Obama to speak to his Citadel employees and raised thousands of dollars for his campaign. The hometown pride didn’t last long.
From 2010-12, Griffin and his wife gave $800,000 to American Crossroads, the super political action committee co-founded by Karl Rove, President George W. Bush’s former adviser. He later gave $100,000 to the super PAC supporting 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Griffin didn’t keep his disdain for Obama to himself. In a 2012 interview with the Chicago Tribune, he said that the country was drifting toward Soviet-style central planning, that the administration had “embraced class warfare” as a “political tool” and that wealthy people have “insufficient influence” in politics.

obama simmons
Harold Simmons, Estimated Net Worth $10B
The now-deceased Dallas oil billionaire wasn’t shy about speaking out against the president. In a March 2012 interview with the Wall Street Journal, Harold Simmons stated, “Obama is the most dangerous American alive because he would eliminate free enterprise in this country.”
According to Forbes, Simmons was the second biggest billionaire donor to GOP candidates and causes in 2012. He gave more than $25 million to Republican super PACs during the 2012 presidential election.
obama koch brothers
Charles and David Koch, Estimated Net Worth $41.3B Each
Charles and David Koch may be the wealthiest and most vocal brothers against Obama’s policies. But while their rhetoric is well-publicized, most notably at their biannual summits of like-minded rich conservatives where Charles once compared Obama to former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, their donations to a political group leave less of a paper trail.
According to Forbes, David held a $50,000-a-plate fundraiser for Romney at his Hamptons estate in 2012. His right-wing think tank Americans for Prosperity spent more than $30 million on ads supporting Republican candidates and condemning Obama’s record. However, as a nonprofit, the organization isn’t required to disclose its donors; the Koch brothers could have donated some of those millions, or not.

obama joe
Joe Ricketts, Estimated Net Worth $1.4B
Chicago Cubs owner Joe Ricketts was embroiled in a scandal in 2012 when a 54-page document was leaked to The New York Times detailing his attempts to fund a $10 million anti-Obama campaign. The proposal included linking Obama with his former spiritual adviser the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr., painting Obama as a “metrosexual, black Abe Lincoln” and hiring an “extremely literate conservative African-American” as a mouthpiece.
When news broke, Ricketts denied any involvement. According to The Times, his efforts to put his money behind smearing Obama didn’t end there. Ricketts helped to finance author Dinesh D’Souza’s successful documentary 2016: Obama’s America, which claims to highlight the president’s “anticolonial” views. He also put money behind the marketing of the book that the film is based on The Roots of Obama’s Rage (2010).

Nina Simone
Legendary jazz singer and civil rights activist Nina Simone was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in the late 1980s.
Nadine Cohodas, author of Princess Noire: The Tumultuous Reign of Nina Simone (2012), touches on Simone’s behavior and bipolar symptoms. The 2004 book, Nina Simone: Break Down and Let It All Out, written by Sylvia Hampton and David Nathan, was the first to reveal Simone’s battle with mental illness. The authors describe Simone’s behavior under the condition:
“Nina Simone had a reputation in the music industry for being volatile and sometimes difficult to deal with, a characterization with which she strenuously took issue. In 1995, she shot and wounded her neighbor’s son with a pneumatic pistol after his laughter disturbed her concentration. She also fired a gun at a record company executive whom she accused of stealing royalties. It is now recognized that this  ’difficulty’ was the result of bipolar disorder. Simone reluctantly took medication for her condition from the mid-1960s on. All this was only known to a small group of intimates, and kept out of public view for many years.”

Gray replied: “It feels bipolar. It just has very extreme ups and downs. It’s one thing and then another, and they’re always opposite.”

7 Riveting Facts About the OJ Simpson Case

Twenty years ago on June 12, O. J. Simpson’s ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and a friend, Ronald Goldman, were found stabbed to death in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles. Simpson, who was an actor, running back, Heisman Trophy winner and one of the most recognizable personalities in the country, was charged with double murder.
What followed the gruesome killings,  was a manhunt  on June 17 that led to the infamous slow-speed chase in the white Ford Bronco, a riveting high-profile trial  on January 24, 1995, with round-the-clock television coverage; and the Oct. 3 not guilty verdict in Simpson’s criminal trial. Two years later, the former football star was, however;  found liable for the murders in a civil trial.
Simpson, now 66, is currently serving prison time on a 2008 armed robbery conviction.
The murder case, the most publicized in American history, reshaped the media landscape and split the nation along racial lines. Twenty years later the impact is still being felt and discussed.
Here are seven interesting facts surrounding the case that continue to make it intriguing to the world today.

OJ Simpson White Bronco 

Evidence Found in Bronco
After the infamous white Bronco police chase ended,  officers found almost $9,000 in cash in the pockets of Simpson’s best friend and former teammate, Al Cowlings, the Washington Post reported. Cowlings was driving the Bronco.
Also in the vehicle, police found a fake goatee and mustache, a bottle of makeup adhesive and receipts from a beauty store, along with Simpson’s passport and a gun.

Transformed Pop Culture and Media
The national obsession with Simpson’s trial was the inspiration for the establishment of the several cultural phenomena. According to The Washington Post, “The 24-hour news cycle, a never-ending stream of reality television shows and many Americans’ unquenchable thirst for celebrity gossip — can be traced to this nearly 16-month span.”
Ironically, the daughters of Robert Kardashian, Simpson’s friend and defense attorney, became some of the biggest beneficiaries of this phenomena.

Glen Rogers Confesses To Nicole Brown Simpson Ron Goldman Murders

Serial Killer Took Credit For The Murders
A convicted serial killer currently on death row confessed to the killing of Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman, according to the 2012 documentary, My Brother the Serial Killer.
Glen Rogers was arrested six weeks after the former football star was acquitted of the murders. Police claimed Rogers went on a nationwide killing spree, allegedly murdering more than 70 people.
Receipts show that Rogers was working as a housepainter in Los Angeles at the time of the Brown-Goldman murders, according to the documentary. In the weeks before Brown and Goldman were killed, Rogers told his brother and sister he was hanging around with Brown. He said she was rich and he was going to “take her down.”
Rogers also provided a “detailed account” of the murder to criminal profiler Anthony Meal, according to the documentary. He even drew a picture of the knife he claims to have used, which matched the forensic description of the blade.

OJ Simpson Trial Glove Fitting

The Trial of The Century
The Bronco chase and subsequent “not guilty” verdict are among the most memorable television moments in the past 50 years. Simpson’s white Bronco chase came in sixth, behind the Challenger space shuttle disaster and the death of Osama bin Laden.
The Simpson verdict was the third most “universally impactful” televised moment of the last 50 years after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks and Hurricane Katrina in 2005, according to a survey by Nielsen and Sony.


oj trial verdict reactions

Embodied America’s Racial Divide
After nearly a year of racial tension stirred by the trial, the country was divided into two camps: 62 percent of white Americans thought Simpson was guilty and 68 percent of African-Americans thought he was innocent, according to a CNN-Time poll taken at the time the verdict was issued.
An NBC News poll taken 10 years later revealed the split along racial lines had not changed much: 80 percent of whites thought Simpson guilty of murdering his ex-wife and her friend, while 70 percent of Blacks considered him innocent.
Twenty years later, a new CNN/ORC poll indicates there has been a turnaround in attitudes towards the former football star, with a majority of Blacks (53 percent) now saying that the murder charges against Simpson were justified, and nearly 90 percent of whites believing he is guilty of the murders.

Juries of Different Racial Demographic Saw It Differently
A change in the racial makeup of the juries deciding the two Simpson trials may have produced different verdicts.
The nine Blacks, two whites, and one Hispanic jury members in the criminal trial found Simpson not guilty.
On the other hand, the eight whites, two Blacks, one Hispanic, and one Middle Eastern (considered white by some sources) jury members in the civil trial found him guilty and ordered him to pay $33.5 million to the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.


dna evidence

Introduced the World to DNA Evidence
Two members of Simpson’s defense team, Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld, had earlier founded the Innocence Project, a nonprofit organization that assigned law students to use DNA evidence to free wrongfully convicted inmates.
Inspired by the use of DNA evidence during the Simpson trial, more than 300 wrongfully convicted inmates rode the relatively new science to freedom. About 70 percent are people of color, according to the Innocence Project’s website.
The Washington Post reported in a recent article that before the trial, this relatively new science was seen as confusing and expensive; the Simpson trial demonstrated it could be available to everyone.
