Black History Month Message to Radio Stations

Dear Radio Personality,

As you know, we have entered into another Black History Month, a month set aside to honor the contributions of African Americans. One thing that I would like to point out is that Hip Hop is part of Black History, too. Therefore, we are asking that you add music to your playlist that reflects the richness of Black culture. Our children need to know that there is more to Black music than Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Niki Minaj. What about Public Enemy, Rakim and the X-Clan? Not to mention local underground acts with a socially relevant message.

Our children are in desperate need of knowledge about their history and culture. Also, with the current political climate in this country, they must become more politically aware. It is difficult to try to convince our children to strive for educational excellence when they are being "dumbed down" everyday by the music that they hear on the radio. This month, your station can help change the mind state of thousands of young people by just adding some Hip Hop with substance to your rotation.

Please choose to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem.

Thank you,
