President and Executive Director Barbara Arnwine Launches Talk Radio Program Focused on Activism as a Catalyst for Achieving Racial Justice and Equality

For Immediate Release February 27, 2015

Barbara R. Arnwine, Esq., noted civil rights leader, will launch a weekly news talk radio program on Radio One’s WOL 1450 AM, beginning March 3, 2015 (inaugural guests are Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton and Rashad Robinson, executive director, Color of Change).  “Igniting Change with Barbara Arnwine” will provide provocative and empowering information and discussion designed to ignite change and inspire action in achieving racial justice, social justice and equality.  The show will broadcast live on Tuesdays, 12-1 p.m. EST, on WOL 1450 AM (D.C. Metropolitan Area) and is accessible by listeners worldwide via the internet (BarbaraArnwine.com and woldcnews.com) and the free Tune In app.

“I am honored for the opportunity to expand my civil rights outreach in such a significant manner as I continue to touch lives across the country and around the globe,” said Ms. Arnwine.  “Activism at every level is indeed critical in advancing race relations and I endeavor to engage, challenge and equip listeners as activists as I feature guests, information and resources to foster justice and equality for all, particularly people of African descent.  My show is designed to answer those questions lots of people have after hearing about a major issue, “What Can Be Done About This? What Can I Do?””

“WOL welcomes Barbara Arnwine to the Radio One family,” said Karen Jackson, general sales manager for Radio One’s D.C. stations.  We look forward to her enthusiasm and expertise in encouraging our listeners to actively participate in effecting change.”
