With the recent unfortunate news of the Crispus Attucks Center, the TCP Network (The Cultured Professional) is aiming to revive the iconic building with the installation of a community radio station. With your help, we can make this happen!

What is a community radio station?

Community radio stations serve geographic communities and communities of interest. They broadcast content that is popular and relevant to a local, specific audience but is often overlooked by commercial or mass-media broadcasters. Community radio stations are operated, owned, and influenced by the communities they serve.

Community radio stations are usually short-range, not-for-profit radio station or channel that caters for the information needs of people living in a particular locality, with formats that are most adapted to the local context. Community radio stations can be mobilized for campaigns, hosting talk shows, or playing radio jingle and songs. As community radio is usually run by volunteers using low-cost technology, it tends to be easy to obtain inexpensive air time. It offers an opportunity for contributions by people whose voice is not much heard on national radio – e.g. “ordinary” women and youth – which can be highly empowering. Community radio reaches a large section of the locality it covers, as listeners tend to be interested in local issues.
