Beginning January 31, 2014, listeners can tune-in to “emPower Hour” for a lively and refreshing discussion on plausible resolutions to the obstacles experienced by communities of color. In addition, emPower Hour will also be used as a platform to spotlight individuals in the DC metropolitan area who are having a positive impact in the lives of others.
Every Friday at 11:00 am EST, DeShuna Spencer will bring listeners important stories about the state of our generation and offer her audience a platform to understand how they can become a part of the solution. Spencer aims to inform, educate, engage and lead her community to the next phase of success. emPower Hour’s mission is to talk about the importance of social activism and get listeners involved. Each show will involve a call to action in which Spencer will challenge her audience to become active participants in changing the world around them.
“I am extremely excited to join 89.3’s family,” Spencer said. “I want to go beyond the statistics, studies and societal ills frequently discussed in the news about our community. I plan to be solution-focused by engaging with people who are already doing the work in our own backyard.”
