KBOO FUNDRAISER FOR HAITI
February 18th from 9 am to 10 pm

On Tuesday, January 12th, the nation of Haiti was hit by a devastating earthquake which destroyed much of the capital city and surrounding areas. The earthquake hit after decades of structural adjustment programs imposed by the International Monetary Fund, which privatized much of the nation's infrastructure, and in the wake of two centuries of abuse of the Haitian people by its former colonizers, a decades-long US occupation, and US-supported military dictatorships. We will examine the history of Haiti, as well as the culture and music of the Haitian people. This will be a fundraiser for grassroots efforts to help the Haitian people rebuild -- not with charity, but with solidarity.

Schedule:

9 am – LIVE – Presswatch: Theresa Mitchell explores the impact of trade policy on Haitian politics with Brian Concannon, head of the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti

DJ Spotlight: Firefly

Categories:

Firefly hosts the Africa O-Ye! program from 2 PM to 4 PM every Thursday. The program has broadcast a range of music from the African continent for the last 13 years.

Firefly, also known as Tony Alabi, came to the US from Nigeria where his parents were from ethnic groups with significantly different cultures. His father is Yoruba and his mother Ibo. He spent much of his childhood in the predominantly Muslim Northern Nigeria, where his parents lived and worked, and vacationed with his maternal grandfather, a tribal Chief in the Christian/Animist Eastern Nigeria. As a teenager, Firefly attended school in Christian/Muslim Yorubaland in Western Nigeria. Perhaps this diverse background predestined Firefly to create the bridge between KBOO listeners and the wealth of African musical styles.
