Please read and understand how important it is for you to vote and demand your voice be heard in this democracy....DCExecutive Publisher The Fight to Free SpeechBasic Principles of Free Speech Lost in Port Arthur Struggle to Save Black RadioDarwin CampbellLone Star Power PagesPort Arthur- As a Black radio station under attack struggles to keep its community voice, it is the community that may be its own worst enemy. Good men doing nothing to stand up for freedom and liberties is worse than the enemy who sneaks in under cover of darkness to overthrow, plunder and steal.“Where are the people when you need them and right now the station needs them?” said station owner Stephen Mosely. “Why are people silent and appear to want something for nothing. When will Black people understand and learn the value of standing up and supporting one another?”The lack of will to fight back for free speech appears to be a result of a lack of understanding of its four basic principles of power and its necessity to the survival of voice in a democracy. It is a problem in every Black community across Texas. KSAP "The Breeze" 107.1, a low-powered FM station, is owned by Stephen Mosely and has been broadcasting local content from Port Arthur City Hall for almost three years with a 100-watt transmitter that reaches throughout a 5-mile radius. His contract was suppose to keep him at city hall through the year 2013, but now that has been changed and Moseley is being evicted and must move in less than 65 days. That in essence would shut down the station and temporarily closing the doors on free speech over the airwaves. The attacks on KSAP (“The Breeze”) is due in part to officials that do not want any radio station or news publications on the street that encourages people to express their opinions or exposes the real “warts”, corruption, discrimination, unfairness, racial strife, divisions or dark side of government and neighborhoods. The integrity of free speech must be protected.Port Arthur Mayor Delores Prince and others are upset over listeners who call into radio talk shows to express opinions about the economic situation, unemployment and other Port Arthur issues that turn up the heat on city officials and are deemed critical or unpopular of the mayor and other city and civic leaders.KSAP, licensed to Truth and Education Corp., and operates with eight full-time volunteers. The station has had free use of an office in City Hall since the station launched in 2005The station plays blues, zydeco, hip-hop, gospel, but is most popular because of its call-in talk shows featuring government and civic leaders and for covering hot local issues.The track record and positive value of his radio station in the community and to the community speaks for itself. Each year, elementary schools celebrate Career Day with a field trip to "The Breeze" exposing our kids to valuable career opportunities in the field of radio broadcasting. During the trip, they enjoy the hands-on experiences and camaraderie with our staff and business community partners who help to make their visit a wonderful lasting experience.The station exposes and keeps in rotation over thirty local bands, artists and teen musicians who have no other venue to share and display their talents and musical creations for the entire world to acknowledge them and possibly be discovered.For nearly three years, KSAP has developed, programmed, engineered, promoted, advertised and successfully broadcasted over 400 shows in meeting the desires, requests and life needs of this community and the surrounding area to the tune of over five million dollars ($5 Million).It serves the community with over 200 Public Service Announcements (P.S.A.) for local businesses and church groups informing the community about business, medical, industrial and educational projects and programs benefiting the citizens of the Golden Triangle area.Perhaps, preachers, teachers, business, civic and community leaders in the African-American community need remedial reminder of the value of free speech to their own voices and how preserving the integrity of free speech makes a difference in communicating the needs of their respective communities. Principle No. 1 - “Free speech, exercised both individually and through a free press, is a necessity in any country where people are themselves free.” - Theodore RooseveltAfrican-American residents have been given a gift and blessing having a public meeting and forum of expression through Mosely and his radio station. Its work has impacted policy and changed the lives and direction of countless youth in that community.Without that voice, politicians don’t have to respect your outcry because it will not be heard beyo
I think this is the best site I have come across when it comes to Black news.It tells us about what is going on in a forward honest way.Thanks for Lone Star Power Pages.Don Mesa
Keep up the good work. I am so sorry to hear about KSAP. What can we do to help? My love and respect for black media began 66 years ago and led to my profession today. My acting career began with my working as a reporter for the DALLAS EXPRESS. Black radio and press helped imeasurably to get us where we all are today. We must not abandon them today.
