18/ The US was particularly agitated by Lumumba’s fervent nationalism (even calling him 'Lumumbavitch') and along with the UN, the UK & Belgium, helped chief of staff Joseph-Désiré Mobutu arrest, torture and execute Lumumba in Lubumbashi on Jan 17, 1961. theguardian.com/global-devel…

Found this old newspaper clip dated June 17, 1961, which makes me 4 years old at the time. We were visiting our family in Bermuda where my Grandfather was born and raised.

Too bad a former Five Star General of the US Army and twice elected President (R) didn’t warn us about the dangers of a “military-industrial complex’s potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power” during his farewell address on Jan 17, 1961. USA is incapable of learning.

Didn’t only happen October 17 1961 but wave of racism in Paris and police oppression from 54 to 62 could logically add up to at least a 1000

Daily News, November 17, 1961. In possibly the most successful transaction in their history, the Mets pay $1,000 for a logo they’re still using.

1/17/1961, the first legally elected PM of the DRC was assassinated after being overthrown with help from Washington. A sinister episode that Larry Devlin, the 'Mr. Congo' of the CIA from 1960 to 1967, would reveal half a century later #CIAKilledJFK theafricareport.com/58653/dr…
