Building Bridges Radio: Your Community & Labor Report

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

WHO WE ARE

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.

Bad Money: Reckless Finance, Failed Politics And The Global
Crisis of American Capitalism"withauthor Kevin Phillips


The author sees the cumulative effects of the current debt crisis,
the depreciation of the dollar and global peak oil as leading not
just to a recession, but a long term crisis significantly impacting
living standards in the U.S. Does this forcast the demise of the
U.S. as the fulcrum of world economic power?
****************************************
"Slavery by Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black
Americans from the Civil War to World War II"

with author Douglas Blackmon

On land owned by U.S. Steel was an unmarked African American
burial ground – and so began a quest to explore the institutions
and complimentary policies that were responsible for the Post-
Reconstruction re-enslavement of Blacks, to provide the manpower
to fuel the growth of industrialization in the South. As Blackmon
probes this largely unexplored area, he offers us a mirror to reflect
and grapple with the currency of racial disparity.
