Education is
our most powerful weapon
for Liberation.

Join me as I guest host on WURD-900 a.m., “Black Talk Radio,” Friday, August 1st, 4 pm – 7 pm.
We’ll be broadcasting live from the Black Star Film Festival in Philadelphia. Our topic of discussion is “Independent film making and the impact of telling our own stories.” Call in to offer your point of view: 866-361-0900 or 215-634-8065.

Education is key for the liberation of our minds and ultimate triumph over oppression. However education reaches far beyond the classroom, with its traditional books and methods. Mass communication plays a major role in enlightenment. Formats span a variety of mediums, including broadcast, print, and of course the Internet. The impressive array of talent represented in the Black Star Film Festival hearkens back to a great tradition in Black film making and photography that includes innovators such as Oscar Micheaux, Gordon Parks, and Melvin Van Peebles. So listen up!
