Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. If everyone who tunes into Democracy Now! signed up for a monthly donation of just $10, we could cover our operating costs for the entire year. Please do your part today. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your first monthly gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to start a new monthly donation, please don’t delay. We’re counting on your support. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.
-Amy Goodman

WATCH: Amy Goodman Shares Her MLK Day Playlist With BlackBook

DN! in the NewsJanuary 20, 2015

What did you listen to this MLK Day? Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman spoke with the arts and culture magazine BlackBook about what songs and interviews are on her mind.

Sara Spruch-Feiner writes, “Every morning, for as long as I can remember, Amy Goodman’s voice has streamed through the radio, and then the television, as she fearlessly broadcasts, Democracy Now!, The War and Peace Report on 1300 public TV and radio stations around the world. This morning, Goodman broadcast a long-lost speech by Dr. King. When she was done, she took some time to chat with us about the songs she listens to, and interviews she’s done, that feel particularly relevant today.”

Head over to BBook.com to see Amy Goodman’s playlist, along with playlists by Ta-Nehisi Coates and others.
