Support Burning Spear Media – our own black stories, our own black voices!

ST PETERSBURG, FL–Everywhere you look, the white media is attacking the African community – slandering the righteous resistance of African working people, painting us as criminals and spreaders of disease, and covering up the murderous police violence waged against our community.

Only the media that WE OWN tells the truth about our lives, our experiences and our struggles. Burning Spear Media is your media and needs your support!

On November 15-16, 2014, Burning Spear Media will hold it’s annual Telethon fundraiser. It’s a 2-day online broadcast on and over the Uhuru Radio Network, featuring special guests, music and a showcase of the African liberation programs and campaigns of the Uhuru Movement.

We’re raising funds to:

  • Buy equipment so we can stream video live online from the front lines of our people’s struggles in Ferguson, D.C. and around the globe.
  • Print The Burning Spear newspaper, the oldest Black Power journal in continuous publication since the Black Revolution of the 1960s.
  • Start-up a new FM radio station in the Uhuru Movement’s headquarters in Florida.

We’re calling on YOU to watch and donate during the November 15-16 Telethon, spread the word, organize a get-together of like-minded people to watch the Telethon together and get involved from wherever you are located.

The 2-day fundraising broadcast will feature up-to-date reports and summations of the current upsurge in revolution African resistance worldwide, special video editions of the popular programs broadcast weekly on and a preview of new programs being launched to join the Uhuru Radio Network line-up.
