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.

In Struggle Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash

An African American and Latinx Peoples History of the U.S.  

An intersectional history of the shared struggle for African American and Latinx and Peoples’ civil rights
with
Paul Ortiz, professor of history and director of the Oral History Program at the University of Florida.  He is the author of Emancipation Betrayed: The Hidden History of Black Organizing and White Violence from Reconstruction to the Bloody Election of 1920 and An African American and Latinx History of the United States

An epic, panoramic account of class struggles in the Western Hemisphere. At center stage are the Black and Latinx people who built the new world.

Spanning more hundreds of years, indigenous peoples history, and the African American and Latinx history of the United States are revolutionary.  They are politically charged narratives arguing that the Global South was crucial to the development of America as we know it.  They challenge the notion of westward progress, as exalted by widely taught formulations such as “manifest destiny” and “Jacksonian democracy,”  and show how placing African American, and Latinx, voices unapologetically front and center transforms American history into the story of the working class organizing against imperialism.
