WURD Radio has a robust lineup of events and programs planned for February, starting Feb. 1 with a special conversation about the history of the Seventh Ward and cultural preservation featuring WURD President and CEO Sara Lomax and Tayyib Smith, the force behind the Legacy Reclaimed project. You can watch a sneak peek of this conversation on YouTube; it will air on Evening WURDs at 4:20 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 1.

WURD is proud to present a special audio vignette project titled Diamonds of the Diaspora: Black Political Figures from Africa, the Caribbean and the USA. This project was curated by our creative and production director Tiffany Bacon in collaboration with First World Theatre Ensemble from West Philadelphia.
