Our Music Our Selves

Our Music Our Selves Revised Mission Statement (as of February 17, 2012)

Posted in Mission Statement by Lester Knibbs on the February 19th, 2012

With the Name of the Gracious and Compassionate
Creator of the Heavens and the Earth

As-Salaam alaikum! Peace!

Our Music Our Selves is a serious and educational exploration of the Qur’an, of symphonic music, and of the role of both the Qur’an and symphonic music in shaping human history and identity; we ask and attempt to answer the questions, Who are we? What are we? and What will we become? Our mission is a mission of healing, a sacred jihaad, to overcome the damaging effects of the Middle Passage, the centuries of terroristic exploitation and oppression, and the generations of self-perpetuating self-destruction that continue to this day. Our program is not about entertainment; it is about struggle, healing, and change.

Our scheduled broadcast time is every Thursday morning from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/americanmuslim360. Our call-in number is 646-716-4478. You can call in to listen or, by dialing “1” between 8:00 (usually) and 8:45, join our conversation. Call us! We love to hear from you.

Brother Lester and Brother Solomon are your hosts.
