In an effort to address the increased amount of shootings and social injustices occurring in America, New York radio stations Hot 97, WBLS, and WLIB are coming together to address the issues on a local level.
Scheduled to air a simulcast, the three Emmis Communcations radio stations will host the One Voice open discussion to concentrate on, “the relationship between the African American community and the police.” Taking place on Thursday [July 14], the conversation will begin at 4 P.M. EST. Moderating the event will be Hot 97’s Ebro Darden, Peter Rosenberg and Lisa Evers; WBLS’ Bob Slade and WLIB’s Bishop Hezekiah Walker and Ann Tripp.
Open to the public outside of the New York City tristate area, listeners can join in on the discussion by calling in using the number 800-223-9797 or simply using the hashtag #OneVoice. With the mix of emotions brought on by the current events of today, platforms to openly discuss diverse views in an effort to hear one another are important in order to create change.
