Powerfully Black Radio Programs

Just wanted to give a shout out to WLIB radio. The Conscious Rasta is on point with so many things and urges us all to gain in economic power and to increase ties with African nations.
Lizz Brown on WGNU St. Louis. She's amazing. She does a 4-hour morning talk/local & national politcs program every morning. She's currently spearheading a movement to take back the St. Louis Public School system from the corporate carpetbaggers who want to privitize the school system. If you want to stream, you have to go directly to as the link from her website doesn't work
