KPFK radio host Margaret Prescod to moderate MLK panel discussion Saturday
KPFK radio host Margaret Prescod to moderate MLK panel discussion Saturday For as long as she can remember, radio has played an important role in the life of Margaret Prescod. Today Prescod produces and hosts the nationally syndicated radio program "Sojourner Truth," heard locally on KPFK 90.7 FM. In the 1950s and '60s, Prescod and her family lived in a little village in Barbados, her birthplace. Her parents owned the sole radio in their village. Whenever a hurricane was about to strike, Prescod's father was the first to hear about it on the family radio. Theirs was a chattel house-a small, movable wooden structure, not that strong, Prescod recalled. "But before my father prepared our family and our house, he went around the village to warn everyone. This was a big lesson for me and my sister: It's not only about you; it's about the community." Prescod, known today for her activism on the air and in the community, was shaped by those early years. "In our village we held on to the old African ways: to share everything we had. Before we ate our dinner, my mother had my sister and me take food across the street to an elder. 'You take this first before you take one spoonful to your mouth,' she told us." As a young teenager, Prescod, her mother and her sister immigrated as economic refugees to Brooklyn, NY. Within two weeks of their arrival, she and her sister had become activists. A medical center was in the process of being constructed, but those in charge were refusing to hire Black people. "My sister and I would block cement trucks. More than 700 people were arrested that summer." Prescod recalls her all-girls school in Brooklyn, where Black people were few. The school's academic counselor told Prescod and her sister there was no reason to take college prep classes-they would become domestics anyway. But their activist aunt marched to the high school and told the counselor and principal that her nieces absolutely would take the classes they needed for college. Prescod graduated high school at age 16 and college at 20. She had wanted to be a school teacher like her parents. She was hired to teach first, second and third graders at PS155 in Brooklyn. "I got a real political education there," she said. A long-time campaigner for women's rights and against racism, Prescod has helped found Black Coalition Fighting Black Serial Murders, Black Women for Wages for Housework, Every Mother Is a Working Mother Network, International Network of Women of Color and Women of Color Global Women's Strike. Near the end of 2009, Prescod was offered a position with Pacifica Radio as the executive producer and host of the Sojourner Truth show, which she had originated earlier as a volunteer. It grew from one morning per week to four. The public can watch Prescod at work this Saturday, as she moderates a panel discussion focusing on justice and the many issues Black people contend with during the Culver City Martin Luther King Celebration. The Sojourner Truth show with Margaret Prescod is broadcast from KPFK in Los Angeles, California, and syndicated by Pacifica Radio stations at WPFW in Washington DC and WBAI in New York City.
