KNOWLEDGE. ... 

A T THE ROOT OF ALL LIBER TY IS THE 
FREEDOM TO KNOW. 

Justice B. Cardozo 

Happy New Year to all our members and 
friends from the staff of WBAI. May 1997 bring a 
more peaceful world and a reaffirmation of the prin- 
ciples of justice and social change by us all. 
In January, WBAI will celebrate 37 years of extraor- 
dinary programming in service to all our communi- 
ties in the New York metropolitan region. We have 
always been the station which offered you the alter- 
native perspective and gave you the most compre- 
hensive news, information and analysis. We believe 
this helps our audience make the more meaningful 
choice and take the responsible decision about the 
events in our city, our nation and our world Each 
year as we mark our birthday, we re-affirm our com- 
mitment to a heritage of service and a tradition of 
excellence. 

This month, WBAI begins our $1 Million 
Winter Membership Campaign which starts on 
January 29 and will conclude in mid-February. 
Some of the many specials which we have planned 
include: A 20-year Retrospective of Black Film 
Makers featuring interviews with major artists from 
Melvin Van Peebles and Harry Belafonte to Spike 
Lee and Samuel L. Jackson, A program called 
Jewish Liberation Theology which will focus on a 
radical re- thinking of spiritual practice and social 
change. Night to Day-A special on the Grateful 
Dead; Billy Strayhorn: a Celebration of his life 
and music, Carl Sagan, with Dr. Michio Kaku, A 
program on Native American spirituality with 
Raven; and cutting edge programs from Democracy 
Now with Amy Goodman throughout the drive. 
Please see this issue of the WBAI Folio for the full 
listings and tune in for some of the best in broad- 
casting during our most important membership cam- 
paign of the year 

This year, as part of the WBAI and Pacifica 



Foundation five-year-plans, there are some crucial 
projects facing the station which we must continue 
to work on, especially our search for a new home 
and broadcast studios. Our current premises were an 
"emergency move" well over two decades ago and 
we are now bursting at the seams. We're in the last 
term of our current lease and in need of more space, 
but less expensive quarters this Fall, we hired a bro- 
ker and started analyzing our space requirements 
We also began site visits all over the city looking for 
some of the critical factors which a station like 
WBAI needs And we're evaluating as many 
options as possible-rental, cooperative or purchase- 
and weighing the cost/benefit of every alternative 

An essential part of this project is just what a 
capital campaign for a new home would cost. Our 
initial projections range from at least $500,000 to 
well over $2 million depending on the option which 
best meets our needs now and for the future This is 
a real challenge but utterly necessary for the sta- 
tion's survival And we are not alone in undertaking 
this long term planning. All of the Pacifica stations 
are also engaging in similar projects-some for new 
premises like WBAI, others for major renovation 
and capital equipment needs as part of the overall 
Pacifica Foundation five-year-plan This process 
was started in 1996 and will be finalized this year. 
We must plan for WBAI to do more than just sur- 
vive but to grow and flourish as we approach 
Pacifica's 50th anniversary year and enter the next 
century.

20 YEARS 



OF BLACK FILM MAKERS 

During the twenty years that I have been working at WBAI, I have documented, on tape, all of the 
major "players" from two of the three main periods of African - American film making. 

The first period, which this program doesn't cover, includes the liACE M017KS of the 1940's. These 
low budgets dramas with all Black casts were made for exhibition in special theaters located only in Black 
Neighborhoods. 

The second and third periods, the BLACKSPLOITATION period of the 1970's and the BLACK FILM 
MAKING liENALSSANC^E of the past ten years are covered in this special. 

From Melvin Van Peebles and Pam Grier to Spike Lee and Samuel L. Jackson, this special presents one - 
on - one interviews and enlightening sound bites from the most important African American actors, writers, 
producers and directors of the past two decades. 

Movies and , by default, television provide most of the information that forms our culture and our soci- 
ety today. The full-day /// depth look at this significant aspect of our artistic, historical and social environment 
is explored in a more comprehensive way than has been previously presented.

"In an infinite universe every point can he consid- 
ered (IS the center" 

— Stephen Hawking,.! Brief History of Tinw 

MATTHEW FINCH, 
DIIUXTOR OF ARTS c<- 
CULTURAL PROGRAMMING 

Such a statement, coming as it does from the 
world of post-Einstein physics, is easily accepted by 
most people these days, but Hawking's words are 
invoked not by a science writer but by Ana Castillo 
in her essays on Xicaiiisma, Massacre of The 
Dreamers. A poet and novelist. Castillo brazenly 
applies this quotation to the passages of contempo- 
rary culture An infinite universe''" I asked her. How 
can this apply when schools are underfunded, jobs 
downsized, when the will to sell dominates the cul- 
ture and our self-appointed social protectors are cir- 
cling their wagons around a white marble dream of 
Western values'' Have you listened to New York 
radio lately'' 

As New York radio listeners, you may well 
feel that the universe is collapsing around a single 
point .. or line . make that bottom line. As listeners 
to WBAl, you're in for some changes this year and 
some, yes, expansion in fact, has already begun. 

On Monday, November 11 at 10 pm, we pre- 
miered City in Exile in the old Arts in the Evening 
slot with producer Martha Cinader leading a circle 
of poets In the weeks since, Janet Coleman, David 
D. Wright, Wendy Perron and others have 
anchored broadcasts of new drama for the radio and 
animated conversation on topics ranging from the 
legacies of Ailey, Grunge and Dada, to urban Zen, 
the mailing of New York and the fine art of overtone 
singing As I write this, we've just completed a 3- 
day week of broadcasts for parents and children 
which (even at 10 pm) received a huge listener 
response But this new program isn't just about 
broad topics It's John Edgar Wideman on 
Victorian novels, Robert Olen Butler on 
J letnamese creation tales, Gary Snyder on rap 
music, and Rhodessa Jones on Austria It's folks 
who do not run within their appointed lanes. Voices 
of an expanding universe 

Expanding as well is the place of live music. 
Over the last year, we've begun to take advantage of 
the new equipment brought to us by listener support 



These days you're likely to hear the sound of living 
music at almost any time of the day or night-from 
Yomo Toro to Yungchen Lhamo, Madeleine 
Peyroux to Bernie Worell This trend will continue 
and hopes are high that 'BAI can once again take its 
place as a hub for live music on New York radio 
But that doesn't quite answer the question I asked 
Ana Castillo: how can you talk of an infinite uni- 
verse when all around us things are contracting'' 

"We've come to this point, and we have 
burned all our bridges, almost completely in terms 
of natural resources and human resources, " she 
said. "If we feel that way, then all the little points in 
the universe end up being swallowed by the whale 
So I do see infinity in terms of the entire globe 
Each of us has to participate actively in some way, 
otherwise it is the Mas.sacre of the Dreamers, it is 
the end. 

That she chose to quote Hawking - whose 
physical condition has robbed him of both speech 
and mobility ~ was then no accident. To rephrase 
her answer, we are still free to choose between the 
shrinking worid of Hawking's body and the 
expanding one of his mind That we can even con- 
template such a choice here at WBAI depends on 
this audience and your continued support for the 
whole range of programs. Each one of them at the 
center. 
Stay tuned, and spread the word.

YOUR COMMUNITY AND 
LABOR REPORT 



PRODUCED BY: MlMl ROSENBERG AND KEN NASH 

LABOR'S UNTOLD STORY: 
BLACK WORKERS AND UNIONS 

Many of us know about A. Philip Randolph 

as President of the Sleeping Car Porters Union in 
the 1930s, and as initiator of the threatened 1941 
March on Washington. The threat of the March suc- 
cessfully pressured President Roosevelt to open up 
war production jobs to African-American workers. 
Randolph continued to be a mover and shaker as 
chief architect of the 1963 March on Washington, 
The masses of people who turned out for the March 
spurred on the civil rights movement and anti-dis- 
crimination legislation of the 1960s. 

But did you know that the Congress of 
Industrial Organizations (CIO) organized black and 
white workers in the South during the depression 
and the war time years'J' A new world was dawning, 
but according to author Mike Honey the CIO's 
postwar offensive. Operation Dixie, was stopped in 
its tracks by the Taft-Hartley law and the Cold War, 
and because it failed to address the relationship 
between issues of racism and class oppression. It 
ignored, indeed negated the connection between 
labor and civil rights 

The dual struggle of race and class reap- 
peared in the 1960's with Fannie Lou Hammer, 
Ella Baker, and tragically, the Reverend 
Dr. Martin Luther King in Memphis, Tennessee. It 
continued to be played out in another context in 
Detroit with the Detroit Revolutionai7 Union 
Movement (DRUM) in the late 1970's. 

And there's more, so much more untold to 
tell, with authors Herbert Aptheker, 
Dr. Gerald Home, Mike Honey and other histori- 
ans. Mix the insights of these scholars with the 
voices from the recesses of history of those who 
risked all to organize for human rights and econom- 
ic justice, punctuate this with the sounds of their 
music and poetry and you have Labor's untold 
stoty. SojouiTi with us thiough the history and 



civil rights movements for social change 

Stay tuned on February 6th, from 9pm-12am, for 

this important broadcast

REVIEWING A CONTINENT AND A PEOPLE 
IN THE CATASTROPHIC PLAY OF HISTORY 

EI.OMBKBRATH 

Prior to this year when one spoke of the 
Great Lakes area, the average person in North 
America would immediately think of Lakes 
Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie and Ontario which, 
with the exception of Lake Michigan, separate the 
northeast border of the U.S. and southeast border of 
Canada Today, however, we are compelled to rec- 
ognize another Great Lakes region where an over 35 
year old conflict between the forces of reaction, i.e. 
imperialism, neocolonial- 
ism, and ethnochauvinism, 
and those of revolutionary 
Pan-African nationalism is 
being played out in a des- 
perate life-and-death strug- 
gle of genicidal proportions. 

This region encom- 
passes the historic Great 
Rift Valley of Africa and 
includes a number of large 
freshwater lakes and central 
and east African states: 
Uganda. Tanzania, and 
Kenya (separated by LakeS^ 
Victoria); eastern Zaire, 
Burundi, Tanzania, and 
Zambia (separated by Lake 
Tanganyika); Malawi. 
Tanzania, and Mozanbique 
buttressed by Lake Malawi 
(Nyasa) Lakes Albert and Edward separating 
Uganda, and Zaire, Lake Kivu separating Rwanda, 
and Zaire; as well as Lake Rudolf shared by Kenya, 
Sudan, and Ethiopia, and Lakes Natron, Eyasi, and 
Rukwa within Tanzania, and Lake Turkana within 
Kenya, etc 

Writing in the Final Call of November 26, 
1996. Ahmed Riifai narrows the area to "the region 
extending from the Kyoga Basin of northern, and 
eastern Uganda and the Mount Elgon foothills and 
Winam Gulf of western Kenya to the eastern 
uplands of the Zaire River in eastern Zaire and to 
the shores of Lake Tanganyka '" For purposes of our 
discussion, however, we will focus on the countries 
of Zaire, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, and slightly. 




Tanzania 

While the current problems engulfing the 
Great Lakes region today stem from the neocolo- 
nialistic legacy of the decolonization process of the 
last 39 years, spanning nine US presidents, and 
eleven Democratic and Republican administrations, 
the real genesis of the calamity goes back much 
longer in history. 

The major problem that agitated the present 
situation, in my view has its origins at least 112 
years ago This occured when the major west 
European imperialist powers of the day met in 
Berlin, Germany from November 1884 until 
February 1885 with the express purpose of dividing 
up the .African continent among themselves into reg- 
ulated spheres of influence Under the urging of 
King Leopold 11 of Belgium, and the host, the 

German Chancellor Otto 
Von Bismark, France. 
Britain, Portugal, Spain, and 
Italy were invited to make 
arbitrary decisions in Europe 
that would have profound 
and disastrous consequences 
for Africa, and Africans 

The 1884-85 Berlin 
Conference on Africa was 
similar in some respects to 
an 1878 Congress of Berlin 
This earlier congress featured 
the same countries— but with 
Russia and Turkey also in 
attendance—that were meet- 
ing to decide the fate of the 
Balkan countries which had 
been controlled by the 
Turkish Ottoman Empire 
Significantly, the beginning 
of the current crises in central and eastern Europe 
can largely be traced to this confab 

If we accept that the attendance of Russia 
and Turkey represent a distinction at the Berlin 
Congress of the Balkans six years before the confer- 
ence on Africa, then we must also remember that 
the latter exent was of an historical unique impor- 
tance: The United States sent an observer whose 
role would eventually be recognized as that of 
"Godfather act", who would give the Berlin act of 
1885 the official "blessing" of the Grover 
Cleveland administration. 

This cabal, with the U.S. seal of approval, 
gave King Leopold the Congo— a territory nearly 80 
times larger than Belgium itself— as his portion an 
moreover, as his own personal domain, hypocritical- 



Afrikaleidoscope (cont'd) 

ly called the "Congo Free State". Germany, as host 
country, recieved what we know today as Namibia, 
Tanganyika [with the island of Zanzibar], along 
with Ruanda and Urundi (today's Rwanda and 
Burundi), Togo, and Cameroon. The avaricious 
greed and murderous rule of Leopold embarrassed 
his cronies so badly that he was forced to cede his 
interest to the Belgian state. Thus this vast country 
became an official Belgian colony in 1908— after the 
loss of nearly half of its indigenous population and 
writter Mark Twain blamed the U.S. for being "the 
Godfather" of the Congo graveyard. 

Germany would lose its colonies after its 
defeat in World War I. As a result, Namibia, which 
Germany ruled as German South West Africa, was 
given over as a trusteeship territory to pre-apartheid- 
still racist South Africa; Tanganyika was passes on 
to Britain, Togo to France, and both were to share 
Cameroon: while Ruanda and Urundi (which 
Germany had ruled along with Tanganyika as 
German East Africa ) were transfered to Belgium. 
Two historical points need to be noted here. One, 
during the reign of Germany over Namibia, they 
practiced genocide to the scale of decimating half of 
its native population, while the international com- 
munity ignored the atrocities of its then partner. The 
other point is how the racist mindset of both the 
Germans and the Belgians distorted the realities 
they found in Rwanda and Burundi, and set the 
foundation for fratricidal carnage to be the order of 
the day.

RADIO 

KANKAN 



Greetings to each and every- 
one. It's been a pleasure spend- 
ing time producing Radio 
Kankan, which began your 
comments and criticisms, dur- 
ing and after each program, are 
gracefully appreciated I'm 
using them to make the next 12 
I months much better than what 
■ you've heard already 
With the will of God, I'm looking forward to 
presenting over 30 of my favorite African artist 
from different parts of the African Globe who prac- 
tice and live for the art as well as the gate keepers 
and cultural activists. 

I believe that over the century, enough music 
has been made to guarantee a lifetime potential for 
African programs across the dial, and there's a lot 
more to come. If you are doing research on the his- 
tory of African music your best bet would be to go 
to the two former colonial powes, France and 
Britain, mainly due to the migration of our best 
artist to their respective colonial handlers. 

Somehow, given the new trends, most of 
what's going to come in the future may very well be 
coming from the America shores. More African 
artists are coming to America, running away from 
Europe as well as Africa. 

The much awaited blend of music between 
the African born artist and fellow African from the 
Diaspora will define the future of American music 
and eventually the rest of the world Yes indeed, 
there's some kind of resistance to that kind of U- 
turn, but you can still hear Africa in most of this so 
called American from Jimy Hendrix to 
Randy Weston, Bob Marley, Sun Ra etc 

In the first quarter of 1997, I will be explor- 
ing the connection between the Bobop and the Sabar 
drum of Senegal as well as other Native African 
Musical styles. This will be presented by live per- 
formances, interviews, in house presentations along 
with Raymond Bah and associates Stay tuned, this 
is Radio Kankan my name is Diabel Faye 
I wish you a very productive year Like the Wolof 
philosopher would say " If 1997 is going to be bad, 
let's hope that it will be much better than 1996"

Thursday January 30, 2:00pm.-6:00pm 




From former Supreme Court Justice, 
Thurgood Marshall, to historian, 
W.E.B. DuBois; author, Richard 
Wright; actor/entertainer, Paul Robeson 
and many others, declassified information 
on the FBI's conduct during the height of 
the Cold War, show that it distorted the 
views and manipulated leaders of the 
African American community in its pursuit 
to both destroy the progressive African 
American movement, as well as to destroy 
what the US deemed as the Soviet Union's 
pursuit of its own international interest. In 
this special two-part marathon program on 
the FBI, The Cold War and the African 
American Civil Rights Organizations, we 
will hear the voices of Thurgood Marshall, 
Paul Robeson, Richard Wright, W.E.B. 
DuBois, Roy Wilkins, Eartha Kitt, Lena 
Home, Harry Belafonte and others. We will 
also talk with scholars, Cornel West, Gerald 
Home, Michael Thelwell, Patricia Williams 
and many others about this historical phe- 
nomenon, and its legacy on the develop- 
ment of the African American community.

Chico Alvarez, pro- 
ducer and host of "We New 
World Golleiy", traces the evolution of the so-called 
"Latin Tinge" in North American jazz to creative 
encounters between Afro-Cuban musicians and 
North American jazz musicians in 1940s Harlem. 

The Harlem community first fell in love with 
the rich rhythms of the Caribbean when they danced 
to the awesome band , "Machito and the Afro- 
Cubans" 50 years ago. Collaboration among 
Charlie Parker, other U.S. jazz musicians and the 
Machito Orchestra sparked Dizzie Gillespie's meet- 
ing with Cliano Pozo, an Afro-Cuban dancer, acro- 
bat, drummer and songwriter. This brief relation- 
ship made history and changed the musical land- 
scape of the nation. 

The New World Gallery's 4-hour special 
illustrates the history and importance of this fertile 
collaboration. We will hear commentary and music 
by Gillespie and Pozo as well as numerous contem- 
porary arists. 

Tune in Sunday, February 9th from 2-6pm.

A REAL 
NEW YEAR'S DAY 



On this anniversary of three important 
Caribbean and African countries, WBAI's 
Behind the News, will feature an examina- 
tion of issues related to human rights and 
slavery; capitalization; economic interven- 
tion and the role of the foreign military in 
Haiti, Cuba, and Sudan. Haiti was the 
[very] first country in history of 
humankind to have undergone a revolu- 
tion, which succeeded in overthrowing the 
national slave system, and which also 
established the flrst independent state by 
former slaves. Sudan, Africa's largest 
country, became independent from Britain 
in 1956 - leading the "long march" of so 
called "Black African Countries" to politi- 
cal independence. And the Cuban revolu- 
tion triumphed in 1959. All three countries 
begun the rewriting of their history on the 
first day of January. Produced and hosted 
by Samori Marksman.

ITYIN EXIL 



E 



PEGGY DOMINIQUE 

In 10th grade, I was lucky enough to have an 
English teacher who gave us A+'s for anything writ- 
ten against capitalism. He also introduced us to 
Ralph Ellisoirs Invisible Man. I knew after the first 
chapter, that he was a good writer, I had already 
become an obsessive reader with certain writers, 
and if a writer didn't hold my interest, I couldn't get 
past the 3rd page. By the 5th chapter o^ Invisible 
Man. I was very depressed and so I put the book 
down; At \i with so many problems of my own 
some of, Ralph Ellison's pain felt too close to 
home 

Then one month ago, Random Honse sent 
me a copy of Ralph Ellison's new book of short 
stories called Flying Home and Other Stories. I felt 
an honored serendipity that our paths had crossed 
again. I picked up this book of short stories and I 
began to read. The first story was about a young 
white boy who witnesses the lynching of a black 
man by fire. I was horrified at the emotional detach- 
ment in the way this little boy describes in detail 
what he observes. But my next reaction overwhelm 
my body like an ocean descending on a tide; I felt 
tremendous guilt as the young white boy (after 

describing this lynching) says" and / had 

enough. I didn 't want to see anymore. I wanted to 
run .somewhere and puke, but I .stayed. I stayed. I 
stayed right there in the front of crowd and looked. " 

I hope you'll join City in Exile on Monday, 
February 17th at 10:00pm, as we look at the work 
and genius of Ralph Ellison, thru the eyes of his 
colleagues and friends. We'll look at his new book, 
that looks at the many layers of racism 40 years 
after Invisible Man.

Most anisu. even the moo 
prommeni. often do not tell out 
the tickeit for their New York en- 
gagements, although a New Yort 
bookmg. with its attendant rc- 
viewt and excitement. increa<ies 
a performer's value on tour. But 
because notody like to play lo 
anything less than a full hoote. 
managements often "paper the 
house" or give away free tickets 
to cover those empiy seats. Mr. 
Seaman runs Ihe Concrrt/Tneater 



Club, which gu aianteei each 
member 100 free concert tickeu 
a year— usually it comes to many 
more, but that's the minimum. 
Members get a mailing every five 
or SIS weeks, telling what's avail- 
able and they can usually pick up 
tickeu at the performance's box 
office by showing members hip 
cards. The list c ov en everything 
from the best-known symphony 
orenettras to solo recitals. In addi- 
tion, the club gets tickeit lo pro- 
grams that have group discounts 
(like the upcoming Mostly Mozart 
Festival), which it then passes 
along at the reduced prices. Also, 
movie discounts for a number of 
tne smaller specially houses, and 
for top Bfoaoway and OfT BitMd- 
way shows. No names oi papered 
groups appear here because who 
wants to announce uiai he or she 
doesn't nil?

Inexpensive Tickets 

Imagine a club that provide* you with free tickeU to 
hundreds of concerU at major New York hails and half 
price tickets to more shows than you can poasibly sit 
Ihiough in a year. Now deduct half the tab for dinner at 
restaurants all over town, add reduced rates at 
movie houses, and you may begin to suspect that 
NormaD J. Seaman's Concert/Theatre Club is the 
biggest bargain in the Big Apple. The price tag conhrms 
this suspicion. A one year, double membership will set 
you back (ready for this?) S'29. Memberships for four 
are even cheaper at $39!
