Stay tuned to WURD all this week for exciting changes to our weekday schedule, including the addition of an early-riser news broadcast called Daybreak at WURD and the introduction of a 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. weeknight block titled The Power Hour!

Vine Memorial Baptist Church’s Community Outreach Ministry is holding a pre-election forum where key issues for the upcoming election season can be discussed. WURD’s own Brother Shomari will lead a conversation on education, including considerations for public schools, private schools, charter schools and home schooling.

The Shomari Show aims to help spread wisdom and knowledge to our people and is grounded in the belief that we must teach our own and control our own narrative. Tune in every Friday at 10:00 a.m.

WURD’s Eye on Education series tackles the difficult issues currently facing the Philadelphia education system with a particular focus on models of success both locally and nationally. Our final event is the WURD Speaks: Eye on Education Symposium on September 30 at the Franklin Institute.

Lots of wonderful content and new voices are coming to the 900AM-WURD airwaves on Fridays – click the headline for details!

As part of WURD’s “Eye on Education” series, and in recognition of the first week of the 2014 school year in Philadelphia, we’re starting our morning broadcasts off with excerpts from previous WURD events that explored education, youth violence, and related topics. Full versions of the programs will be added to this post daily.
