We Rise on KPFB
Listen to We Rise's introductory show A Tribute to our Ancestors.
We Rise is collaboration, a collective of voices, a cross-pollination of communities...
We are collaborators seeking to create socially conscious work that inspires collective liberation.
We Rise are cultural producers who embody solidarity, theory in the flesh & aspire to heartfelt, prayerful offerings to the freedom movement of our time.In order to Rise, we must know where we stand, where we come from.
This show is a tribute to our ancestors, our foremothers and fathers, the souls who’ve given us life, who’ve shaped our movements, those known and unknown. While we offer gratitude to individuals, we know our movements are not built upon singular great leaders, they are built by the many, uniting despite the divide and conquer status quo.
We honor those who have come before us in struggle and in resilience. Their words, manifestos of promise, dedication, fortitude, and humility, breathe life into our movements
We Rise brings you stories, interviews, and music to nourish our imaginations in service of collective liberation. We are honored to share Feral Visions, a decolonial, feminist podcast hosted by Anjali Nath Upadhyay, founder of adult grassroots freedom school Liberation Spring. Tune in for consciousness-raising, analysis, current affairs, and unlearning from some of the most provocative visionaries in our movements. Let’s make our ancestors proud.
We Rise airs every Sunday at 3 PM on 89.3 FM KPFB in Berkeley, California, or occupied Huichin.
Each episode is archived and available for free listening on iTunes & Spotify.
