The 48th annual Boston Pride Parade is happening on Saturday June 9th 2018. In recognition of this, WMBR will be celebrating Pride Week from June 4th-10th! We’ll be featuring content curated by individual DJs, focused on LGBTQIA+ lives, voices, history and discussion.

Here are some resources created for/by the LGBTQIA+ community at MIT (and some related to the wider Boston/Cambridge area):

We’re starting off our summer season show features with Africa Kabisa, hosted by Julia Mongo and Muna Kangsen! Africa Kabisa means “Africa Absolutely” and first aired at WMBR in 1992, featuring classic and contemporary African and Afro-Caribbean music alongside interviews and discussion on African-related topics.

You can listen to Africa Kabisa on Sundays from 4-6pm, except for the last Sunday of each month (when Brutus hosts Worldbeat). This is a part of Sunday’s “world music block”, featuring programs that draw upon music and other content from across the world.
