Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report

Produced and Hosted by Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash over WBAI,99.5FM in the NYC Metro Area


WORKERS OF THE WORLD TUNE IN! Introducing "Building Bridges: Your Community & Labor Report"

Our beat is the labor front, broadly defined, both geographically and conceptually. We examine the world of work and workers on the job as well as where they live. We examine the issues that affect their everyday lives, with a particular sensitivity towards human rights abuses, environmental concerns and the U.S. drive for global domination. We record their global struggles and provide analysis of their efforts to empower themselves and transform society to provide greater democratic, human, social, political and economic rights. Each program consists of feature stories, generally interviews, within a historical context, often accompanied by sound from demonstrations, rallies or conferences, and complemented and enhanced by poetry and instrumental or vocal -- people's culture.

Over the years Building Bridges has produced a weekly one hour program, Mondays from 7-8 PM EST, covering local, national and international labor and community issues over radio WBAI-Pacifica 99.5 FM in New York. We also produce half hour version, Building Bridges National, which is distribtued to over 40 broadcast and internet radio stations.

End Mass Incarceration with Mumia Abu-Jamal, Angela Davis, Soffiyah Elijah, and Marc Lamont Hill  

“And The Walls Came Tumbling Down” 
Mumia Abu-Jamal, Angela Davis, Soffiyah Elijah,
and Marc Lamont Hill

Recalling in now its 41st year the Attica prison massacre of courageous prisoners who rose up against dehumanizing conditions, thousands came together to follow their lead and resist the burgeoning system of caging human beings.  Insisting that solitary confinement cease, that Attica be closed, and that the pipeline from community to prison be turned off, and rallying against what has now become referred to as the “New Jim Crow” the crowd reached a crescendo after Mumia Abu-Jamal, political prisoner, author, journalist and social critic, reached by phone spoke to them delivering a message that left everyone present with a sense of hope, good feeling and determination, to tear down the walls and shutter the prison-industrial system.

This extraordinary event was sponsored by the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal; The Riverside Church Mission and Social Justice; the Riverside Church Prison Ministry; the Correctional Association of New York; the New York State Justice Network and the Campaign to End the New Jim Crow.
