After months of working in the studio along side Chris and Rec the newest member of the TRGGRadio family Harmonie, has officially produced and hosted her first solo episode of TRGGRadio this past Friday. Harmonie first came to TRGGR during her fall 2011 semester at UMass Amherst. She quickly transitioned from an interested onlooker to a an active participant of the show. Harmonie began to intern with TRGGRadio during her Spring 2012 semester, contributing to each weekly broadcast. During this episode Harmonie spoke of what she referred to as “TRGGR musical chairs” as throughout the summer Chris, Rec, and herself will be rotating hosts on the show. Harmonie hopes to bring a new sound to TRGGR with an array of local and underground hip-hop and R&B artists streaming through her play-lists, as well as a unique lineup of guests ranging from musical talent, activists, and young entrepreneurs making commendable moves in today’s society. During the middle part of the show Harmonie shared a conversation she had with Brother Chris about her mixed racial background and how she identified herself racially. Through the conversation Harmonie became much more aware of the struggles she faces as well as the priviliges she has due to her mixed racial background. Harmonie prompted listeners who either come from mixed racial backgrounds or simply have insight on the topic to share their stories and or views with her through email at Harmonie hopes to use this information to develop a future segment on individuals of mixed race for the show. The show concluded with a musical sample from the Futuristik Boys, a hip-hop group out of Lawrence, Massachusetts Harmonie is currently doing a documentary on. Continue to listen while Harmonie progresses with TRGGRadio over the summer. To find out more about Harmonie and the projects she is working on, follow her on Twitter @harmoniechar.

  2. 49. The majority of Afro­Brazilians live in unhealthy premises and districts, without sewers, running water or electricity. They make up the majority of the inhabitants of the favelas which are built of makeshift materials on the outskirts of the major cities. Each year, during the rainy season, landslides carry away shacks belonging to poor families in the favelas perched on the hillsides, killing many people, most of whom are Afro­Brazilians. On 31 May 1995 a landslide killed 28 people in the Arraial do Retiro district in Salvador in the State of Bahia. Most homeless people who sleep in the streets of Brazil’s big cities are Black or of mixed parentage.
