Our show on Tuesday, March 7th, 12:00-1:00 PM, will celebrate the 2nd Anniversary of Igniting Change! As we start our 3rd Broadcast year, we will reflect on the impact of Igniting Change and some of our most powerful stories while contemplating the future horizons for program. The show will include interviews of some of our special guests and interviews of our host, Barbara Arnwine, for her perspectives about 2 full years of broadcasting.

Guests will include Terry O’Neill, President of National Organization for Women; civil rights legend, Rev. Jesse Jackson (invited); Brenda Ford Harding and more.

Among its many accomplishments have been Igniting Change’s promotion of resources and activism strategies for its growing national and international listening base, Igniters for Change! From voter education to fair housing and affordable housing strategies to employment opportunities, the show has been diverse and broad ranging in presenting the audience with stimulating and often unique stories. Guests have included members of Congress, White House officials, civil rights leaders, prominent Hip Hop artists, leaders from the movement for Black lives, labor unionists, women leaders, grassroots leaders, authors, economists, legal leaders and so many more.

Over the first two years, Igniting Change has been a newsmaker covering stories overlooked by other media. Igniting Change has traveled to broadcast live and pressure media to cover vital stories most notably that of the Officer Daniel Holtzclaw, serial rapist case, emanating from Oklahoma City. Another early media story was that of The Flint Water Crisis.

In three subject areas, Igniting Change, has been a consistent leader: Voting Rights & Combatting Voter Suppression; Police Shootings and Black Lives Matter; and the intersectionality of Race and Gender! Igniting Change broke the news of the firing of the Chicago Police Department Chief over the deaths of Blacks.

We will review some of our most prominent cases while looking forward to the future of Igniting Change in the Trump years and beyond.

Be sure to listen live on Tuesday, March 7th, 12:00-1:00 PM, Eastern, in the DC Metro Region, at WOL 1450 AM and worldwide on the Internet at
