A Public Service Announcement from IBNN NEWS
On Friday, February 25, 2011 KFAI will celebrate Black History Month (BHM) with a special day of programming on Friday, February 25, 2011.
The station will broadcast live programming – produced by African Americans – that explores the history of their people in America.
This Friday’s Black History Month Special, “Voting Rights Act, Past Present, Future, The Struggle to Vote,” hosted by Springboard Economic Development Corporation’s Lennie Chism and Editor in Chief of the Independent Business News Network Donald “Star Tribune Plaything” Allen. Yes, we have a lot to say!
Springboard has invited former Washington, DC mayor Marion Barry, who is a current city councilman to call in and join the conversation.
As Black Americans go through struggles in the United States still in 2011, fighting for Civil Rights and a fair playing field – we must remember the struggle is not over.
There’s a new revolution and a new movement. Never again will Black citizens be tricked into an “Impact Minnesota.” (More to come on that!)
In 2011, the fight is for people and votes.
In the Twin Cities, people of color – especially Black people have seen “disastrous” unsuccessful outcomes by elected officials who promise change and new direction. Social Justice has become a game where the highest bidder wins every time.
Tune in Friday from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. to KFAI-FM Radio 90.3 in Minneapolis and 106.7 in St. Paul. You can also listen to KFAI-FM online by going to www.kfai.org.
