This Kind of HATE by Ty Greenwood

Hello beautiful peeps, I hope your Friday is going well. There will be a performance of an original student-written play next week that I thought all our fans should be informed about.


This Kind of HATE deals with issues pertaining to interracial relationships/friendships, police brutality, race, politics and the role media plays on these subjects

The play follows the events leading up to and after the shooting of an African-American young man and the controversy surrounding it. The inspiration of the play came from various news stories of police brutality, such as the Eric Garner and Trayvon Martin cases. Ty is hoping to ignite conversations concerning this topic as well as others that deal with race or difference.

The play will be performed in Olin Rm. 102:
Wednesday May 3 @ 5:30PM
Thursday May 4 & Friday May 5 @ 6:00PM

We hope to see you there and we hope that it will be a rewarding and learning experience for all individuals in attendance.

Shine Season

Wale: SHINE 
Release Date: April, 28, 2017
If you know me, you know that I represent Washington DC at any turn I can! It is with my greatest pleasure to announce that DC's very own Wale will be releasing his new album SHINE tomorrow! Wale's last album was released in 2016 and he complete revolutionized the game, by using the popular sitcom "Seinfeld"as a inspiration to each track. I was fortunate enough to attend a Wale's concert where he shared some of his new music. I must say my favorite song so far is "Black is Gold". He uses a very soulful beat as an uplifting and ode to black women. I encourage you to listen and even buy the album! You will not want to be the last to hear!

Radio Documentary: The Crimes of Jiang Zemin

Hello peeps! I hope you're enjoying and making the most of your Monday. We have a special documentary airing this week.

(Jiang Zemin) Source: NY Times


The Crimes of Jiang Zemin: 200 Thousand File for Official Investigation is a soul-stirring account of 3 women who were brutally tortured in Chinese prisons because they refused to give up their practice of Falun Dafa.  After narrowly escaping being killed for their organs, they fled to Canada and joined the world-wide movement to bring former head of the Chinese Communist Party, Jiang Zemin, to justice.   

The content also related to the US as the US House of representatives passed H.Res. 343 unanimously last June (Expressing concern regarding persistent and credible reports of systematic, state-sanctioned organ harvesting from non-consenting prisoners of conscience in the People's Republic of China, including from large numbers of Falun Gong practitioners and members of other religious and ethnic minority groups). To learn more go here to read an article about the censorship the government poses.

 

The documentary will be airing today, Monday 24  to Thursday 27  at 4PM on here or 91.7FM.
