Supporting black media firms is crucial in correcting and creating history that includes us. Black media plays a vital role in providing information and telling our stories. It sheds light on the other side of history that has not been readily known for generations.
One such black media firm is The Greenwood Beat – WFPG, a pioneering black, women-owned radio station in Oklahoma. This remarkable achievement alone is reason enough for the entire community, city, and state to support it.
WFPG gives a voice to Greenwood, but it also serves as a voice for the community, especially the disadvantaged, by highlighting important issues and facilitating meaningful discussions. The station covers a wide array of topics and shares valuable information. Some shows and music are there for entertainment and feel-good moments, while others delve into more serious matters.
Currently, Dr. Angela K. Chambers and Dr. Francetta L. Mays, the founders of The Greenwood Beat, are running a fundraiser on GoFundMe to seek support for their radio station. They are requesting funds to purchase equipment, software, and memberships for advertising and promotion, with the aim of taking the station to new heights.
Supports can donate, purchase advertising or merchandise or sponsor a show to effort to support and help the station grow! For more information contact the station via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or click on the links below.
