FEATURING AJAMU BARAKA – The historic US election is a face-off between two highly unpopular major party candidates, which the New York Times has estimated, were chosen by a total of only 9% of the nation’s population.

In the wake of the two major party conventions, third parties have seen a significant bump in the polls, reflecting the growing popular disgust at both Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and the political parties that represent them.

Perhaps you saw my interview with Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein last week. Today, we bring you Stein’s running mate whom she has just announced.

Ajamu Baraka, fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies, and editor and columnist for Black Agenda Report. He is a long time public intellectual and political activist and the Green Party’s 2016 Vice Presidential candidate.
