Black Power 96.3 FM Radio in St. Petersburg, Florida has a lot to celebrate! The 2022 July Supporting Member Fund Drive exceeded its $8,000 goal.
The festivities included an online concert featuring musical artists from across the country, all contributing their talents to support the community station.
Volunteers from around the world
The station's creative team is growing, with volunteers ranging in age from 14 to 74. Some live around the block while others volunteer their time from the other side of the globe.
The free training provided by Black Power 96 is giving many of these volunteers their first opportunity to do professional radio voiceovers and audio editing.
Black Power 96’s weekly “Local Going Global” contest continues to give radio exposure to the many talented unsigned artists in the black community.
Syndication and podcasting
Two of Black Power 96’s locally produced programs are reaching a worldwide audience, through podcasting and syndication on other community radio stations:
- Black Power Talks (formerly The People’s War show) airs Thursdays at 5pm ET, bringing an African Internationalist perspective to the news of the day. Catch past episodes HERE.
- Reparations in Action airs Fridays at 3-4pm ET with its ongoing series called “White Lies Shattered.” Catch past episodes HERE.
Critical source of info
Black Power 96 continues to provide the most reliable information on how our community can protect ourselves from the coronavirus pandemic and keeps local listeners informed with vital weather and safety information during Florida’s hurricane season.
Black Power 96 radio is a project of the African People's Education and Defense Fund, the baddest nonprofit on the planet.
Black Power 96 is not just explaining the world, it's changing it—with your support!
