'The Black Hour'

April 22, 2008

BSU members form radio show to air issues

The word ‘Black’ is often used figuratively to describe negative occurences–“Black Tuesday” or the “Black Plaque” but a few Laney students are redefining “Blackness.”

The Black Hour is an internet radio show, organized by members of the Laney Black Student Union (BSU), airing online at 9th Floor Radio through Peralta TV.

The Black Hour sheds light on the voices of Laney’s Black students, taking them from the abyss of silence to the glow of empowerment.

Weaving lively student-driven discussions with live music, The Black Hour airs students issues and topics relevant to the community in first person.

The show features discussions led by students on topics ranging from the Presidential Elections to Black male and female relationships. The Black Hour can be heard online at http://www.9thfloorradio.com/.
