KFAI has a tradition of celebrating Black History Month each February with a full 24-hour day of programming by KFAI hosts who identify as Black and members of the Twin Cities Black and African Diasporic community. With your help, we also hope to expand the event to include additional community programming scheduled throughout the entire month. This event is to provide a platform for displaying the multitudes of real Black experiences and histories.
Program proposals are reserved for Black people/members of the African Diaspora. If you encompass one of the identities listed and are interested in participating, you can choose to get involved in a number of ways.

“It’s time for me to explore this maze of life for new cheese and give space for someone fresh to experience the joys of community radio. Thanks to all of you beautiful wonderful souls who traveled with me through this journey of exploring black music from around the globe. To the homies I enjoyed random convos with in the halls of KFAI, you will be dearly missed. I’ll also miss the free food at pledge drive. Enjoying the conversations that took place on the other side of that thin music library wall. Popp’n in on shows and sharing laughs with some of the dopest hosts/guests. Wishing y’all a fantastic 2022!!!!”
If you would like leave to any farewell messages to Jumondeh, please email Interim Program Director, Miguel Vargas: email@example.com
