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.

Supreme Court Gives Go Ahead For Re-segregating - 27:13  

How The Supreme Court Gave Go Ahead For Re-segregating and How We Can Fix It?
Damon Hewitt, Dir., Education Practice Group, NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Inc. (“LDF”)
Ryan Haygood, Director of the, Political Participation Group, LDF

The Supreme Court gutted a key voter protection, stepped up scrutiny of race in college entry and made it more difficult to sue for workplace discrimination.  For African-Americans, the politics and public policy that make for a more humane & equitable society remains elusive. Despite the hardship and struggles that African-Americans face, there are many who oppose the correction of the disparities still rooted deeply in American life and the  promise of equality.  We’ll examine what happened, what’s likely as a result of these collection of decisions, and how we fix it!
