RACE TALKS® with Kimberly Y. Erwin on WGXC-90.7 FM


(September 15-October 15, 2023)


Join us for a very special RACE TALKS® radio show in September 2023 with your host Kimberly Y. Erwin and our extraordinary guest, Pamela "Ma" Badila, co-founder of Diata-Diata International Folkloric Theatre. We're excited to have you tune in on Tuesday, September 19th at 7:00pm on WGXC-90.7FM.

In September, our TALK Theme takes us on a fascinating journey to Africa, aptly titled "AFRICA NOW!" Ma Badila, a captivating storyteller and cultural ambassador, will be our guide as she shares her recent expedition to Tanzania. Join us as she recounts her adventure, which she embarked on with a group of students and local businesspersons, exploring the vibrant tapestry of Tanzania's culture and heritage.

This month, our "Talk Term" delves into the critical distinction between being anti-racist and non-racist. We'll provide a comprehensive explanation of this difference, setting the stage for our October guest TALKer, who will illustrate this contrast through a colorful graphic.

For those who haven't had the opportunity to visit Africa, fear not, because we will transport you there through the airwaves. And in an exciting twist, this episode marks our triumphant return to the studio! (Bet you thought we were going to say "back to Africa," didn't you? LOL!)

Your journey awaits, so don't miss it! Additionally, we'll treat your ears to the vibrant sounds of Hudson's LATINX Heritage Month Festival, which was an absolute sensation this year. Join us for a captivating evening of conversation, culture, and celebration, right here on RACE TALKS® with Kimberly Y. Erwin.

Reverend Kim Singletary asked me to join her as she engages in a conversation with the Youth of Hudson in what it means to be African American in these days--over 50 years after the start of the Civil Rights Movement in the 60s. We will listen and impart the knowledge we have obtained directly from our lives - growing up in the 70s and breaking barriers to allow for a less color-discriminating (not color-blind) society.Both Kimberly and Rev. Kim Singletary are part of the Founder's Circle for Africa's Daughters of the Diaspora (ADD).
