About Black Power 96 Radio

Location:

1245 18th Avenue South, St. Petersburg, FL 33705, US

Mission Statement

Defend the human and civil rights of the African community and address the grave disparities in education, health and economic development.

Description

WBPU Black Power 96.3 FM is radio by and for the black community!

The new community station located in St. Petersburg, FL is a project of the non-profit African People’s Education and Defense Fund! We deliver a fresh sound featuring locally produced music and neighborhood news, as well as news and information from the Caribbean, Africa and the world.

96.3 FM stands tall as a non-commercial radio station owned and controlled by the black community of south St. Pete where 70 percent live under the poverty level and where full access to employment, housing, health care and quality education is routinely denied.

Today over 90 percent of the airwaves are controlled by six corporations - Comcast, News Corp, Disney, Viacom, Time Warner and CBS. Clear Channel alone owns more than 1000 radio stations and 80 percent of the music playlists in the U.S. are identical.

Black Power 96.3 FM addresses these disparities by serving as a hub for the training and employment of broadcast professionals, musicians and engineers.
