If you are awarded a grammy, you are considered to be the best artist among your peers. The problem is, the Grammys is a white-dominated organization and while it has long "included" non-white people, specifically Black people in the music business, the industry continues to support, promote and reward music that is harmful to black people in general and black women and girls specifically.
Tonight on New Abolitionists Radio we will be speaking with Gale Muhammad who is the founder and president of Women Who Never Give Up (WWNG Up, Inc.). She is well known for her work helping families with loved ones in prison. For the past 21 years, Gale has worked tirelessly advocating and lobbying for changes in our criminal justice and prison system. Gale is routinely called on by national organizations, committees of the NJ Legislature, NJ Department of Corrections and the NJ State Parole Board to give testimony on a particular issue or bill.
Join us tonight in conversation on New Abolitionists Radio. It is hosted by former prisoner Taison McCollum, activist Mother Khadija, a former prisoner and Grammy-nominated music artist Maxwell Melvins, and Black Talk Radio Network founder Scotty T. Reid.
