Uhuru Greetings to Black Power 96 Radio listeners and supporters!
We are thinking of you and hope you are healthy and well.
The safety and well-being of our staff, volunteers and our community at large is top-of-mind. To that end, Black Power 96 Radio has made adjustments, including closing the station to the public for now.
We are following all guidelines for social distancing and keeping the station sanitized to protect those who will be coming in to keep the broadcasts, with essential updates for our community, going.
Supporting Our Community’s Own Media Right Now is Critical!
Now more than ever, carrying out APEDF’s mission on the radio airwaves — to address the disparities in health, economic development and education in the African community — is critical and needed.
Black Power 96 Radio needs your support to develop and deliver the programming that speaks to and arms our people with the information we need to survive this virus and all the other conditions imposed on us by colonialism.
Black Power 96 staff and volunteers are working right now on station improvements, including upgrading our mobile app so that you can more easily tune in and be in touch with Black Power 96 wherever you are.
Supporting Members (donors) kickstarted Black Power 96 Radio three years ago and keep it funded every day. We are funded by our community and that means we are accountable to our community, not to corporate advertisers or other big money interests.
If you are not already a Supporting Member, there is no better time to start. Donating generously to this station is an investment in media for the African community that is not only explaining the world, but empowering our people to change it!
Our volunteer DJs are currently continuing to host their live shows as they are able. So you can continue to listen to both the live shows and pre-recorded programming 24/7 at 96.3 on the FM dial in St. Pete or streaming on our website and mobile app.
COVID-19 Information and Updates
Black Power 96 Radio will share all the information we are able to gather regarding how to best prevent and prepare for the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).
APEDF’s sister non-profit, the All African People’s Development and Empowerment Project, is providing daily updates, including helpful information and best practices about how our whole community can stay healthy and safe.
Black Power 96 Radio will be doing everything we can to keep you informed including:
- Rebroadcasting AAPDEP and other Uhuru Movement web shows on COVID-19
- Live announcements of new developments, particularly those affecting our listeners in St. Petersburg, Florida
- Sharing all this information via our website and social media
We want to hear from you!
