Lisa's fundraiser for Black Power 96 Radio

by Lisa Watson




Campaign has ended


I’m raising money for Black Power 96.3 FM, a black community radio station in St. Petersburg, Florida that can also be heard from anywhere in the world via the station’s online stream (at and on the Black Power 96 free mobile app. Tune in anytime for the most dynamic playlist of African music from around the world and a growing lineup of live shows and podcasts, including: Omali Taught Me (a weekly political study by Uhuru Movement leader Chairman Omali Yeshitela), White Solidarity with Black Power, The People's War radio show and podcast, Diasporic Music, The Top 5 at 5 Local Going Global weekly music contest and more!

Black Power 96 Radio is a black community-controlled media institution; the black working class broadcasting its own voice and perspective. A project of the non-profit organization, the African People’s Education and Defense Fund (APEDF), the station’s mission is to defend the human and civil rights of the African (black) community through shows that address the grave disparities in education, health and economic development faced by African people here in the U.S. and around the world.

Black Power 96 Radio is made possible entirely through community support. Volunteers who can learn about radio broadcasting to host and engineer shows, who help staff the office and spread the word through outreach. And the station relies on donations from supportive individuals and businesses in the community to operate each month and to grow.

From the white community, we can take a stand of reparations by contributing generously to this station.

Help keep Black Power 96 Radio going strong! Your contribution is put to work right away, amplifying the voice of the black community and helping to change the entire world.

Keep Black Power 96 Radio Going Strong into the New Year!
