  • Disaster Awareness For Community Preparedness #DAFCP 323.927.2913

    in Self Help

    Hosted By: Rudolph T. Muhammad and Joseph Bridgers Muhammad


    The “Disaster Awareness for Community Preparedness” Program is dedicated to discussing the previously mentioned and other pertinent topics regarding proper planning before disaster strikes. The objective of the presentation is to identify problems, offer mitigating solutions to hazards, and share specific information essential to minimizing loss of life and maximizing faster rescue or recovery in affected regions or communities. There will be subject matter experts as guests in our future shows that will assist our listening audience with the latest knowledge, skills and ability to prepare for risk reduction and hopefully ensure our family’s safety.


    There are at least two things certain about any natural or man-made disaster; it does not racially discriminate and it impacts all areas of people activity, i.e., economics, education, labor, law, politics, etc. Please join us and feel free to call-in at 323-927-2913. Let’s engage in thought provoking topics and courageous conversations of “Disaster Awareness for Community Preparedness”.

    Creative Community Culture

    in Music

       Please join us for a conversation about Creativity, Community, and Cultural relevance. We will be engaged with two dynamic guests.  The first half of our program, we will interview the talented vocalist Ozara Ode. Ozara has started a Gofundme campaign to take her Nina Simone adaptation to Broadway. After reaching much success in Atlanta with the production “In the Key of Nina” during the summer of 2015, Ozara is on a mission to further honor Ms.  Simone’s legacy. We will be talking more with Ozara to find out what she is doing and how we can support her. 


       The dialogue for the second hour will be driven by Pittsburg raptivist, Jasiri X who has been steadily climbing the rungs of the underground ladder worldwide. Jasiri made major noise with his debut single “Free the Jena6”. Tonight he will enlighten us about Black Liberation Theology and share what else he has in store. 


        We will contemplate the fate of a center that was designed with the spirit of Comrade Tupac Amaru Shakur in mind. Built to be a hub of Creative Community collaboration and cultural education, it has long been shut down and now the building is for sale.  We look into ideas about what happened, why, and what we can do differently to insure that similar efforts flourish. Welcome to the Blaq Hour.

    Open Book: A Queer Quandary for Ash Wednesday by Kimberly Knight

    in Spirituality

    Ash Wednesday begins a 40 day journey called Lent.  Lent is a time of prayer, fasting and almsgiving.  It is a time of reflection, forgiveness, change, mercy - the list goes on and on.  Perhaps this year, it can be a time to spend time in deep prayer and contemplation about what it means to live in community with one another.  We hope you will join us with an open heart as we discuss a recent blog post on patheos.com by Kimberly Knight.

    2/10/16 w/guest Amy Haimerl

    in Books

    Today's guest is jounalist Amy Haimerl author of "Detroit Hustle."


    About our guest and her book:


    Journalist Amy Haimerl and her husband had been priced out of their Brooklyn neighborhood. Seeing this as a great opportunity to start over again, they decide to cash in their savings and buy an abandoned house for $35,000 in Detroit, the largest city in the United States to declare bankruptcy.


    As she and her husband restore the 1914 Georgian Revival, a stately brick house with no plumbing, no heat, and no electricity, Amy finds a community of Detroiters who, like herself, aren't afraid of a little hard work or things that are a little rough around the edges. Filled with amusing and touching anecdotes about navigating a real-estate market that is rife with scams, finding a contractor who is a lover of C.S. Lewis and willing to quote him liberally, and neighbors who either get teary-eyed at the sight of newcomers or urge Amy and her husband to get out while they can, Amy writes evocatively about the charms and challenges of finding her footing in a city whose future is in question. Detroit Hustle is a memoir that is both a meditation on what it takes to make a house a home, and a love letter to a much-derided city.

    Jim Shaw of Blu Trinity Comics: Comic Artist & Comic Theorist

    in Radio

    Reading comic books was a big part of my life as I was growing up. Batman and Superman were frequent companions, but my all time favorite comic was MAD Magazine. Comics and comic artists have evolved over the years from The Yellow Kid which was featured in 1895 in the New York World to web based artists like Jim Shaw and his Will Draw for Food creation. There was a time when Jim was living on his own, working three minimum wage jobs just to make ends meet. In Jim’s own words: “I recall early one morning, in the backroom of one of my tedious retail jobs, half-awake, I had a revelation. I did not want to simply exist, to merely pass through this one chance at life, forgotten, known by no one. An unobserved life is not worth living. With that notion playing in my head all day, I quit my jobs, moved back home with my parents, and applied to Brookdale Community College.” Jim had always been interested in comics, manga, video games and all other degrees of nerd paraphernalia, and so he began pursuing a career as a comic artist. He has gone on to work on multiple projects, comics and children’s books, such as Aerin, Will Draw for Food, I am a Superhero, and many more. Jim works online with many other artists, and in June of 2015, he co-founded a comic books publishing house called Blu Trinity Comics with two colleagues. Their goal is to help others get their comic books published, online, in-print, and into the hands of readers across the globe.

    Gems of Wisdom-Facets of Love

    in Spirituality

    Truthfully, sometimes true love doesn't feel like love. As we grow older, give care to our parents, have to step back and bite our tongues with our children, and watch our bodies change, it can feel like duty, exasperation, disrespect, sorrow, self-criticism or compromise.


    Removing these negative imprints and getting a fresh start is the perfect energy for St Valentine.


    What gemstones and crystals are best for these many facets of love?


    My special guest is Misty Nelipot of Mystic Krystal, in Denton Texas. Her spiritual lesson for us is sharing how a busy mother of four, home schools, runs a business, keeps the romance alive and follows her passion of creating beautiful, one-of-a-kind jewelry.

    In our show today we will clear the residual energetic imprints of love to get new perspective on why loving is the only solution worthwhile.


    I’ll share a heart activation ceremony with the color pink and the gemstone, Rhodonite.


    This activation will remove imprints of unrealized expectations from the past, boost your self-confidence and strengthen boundaries
