The BAN Radio Show aims to support an international literary community and to show people, through the radio show, that authors of color are more than just a niche. That we bring wonderful stories to the minds and imaginations of everyone. We have stories to tell, using our voice and our experiences, that cross all races and cultures. The mission of BAN Radio show is to give a platform for African American authors, but to also show the diversity of genres within our literary community.

The BAN Radio Show is a platform for authors who should be recognized as having cross-over books. We are aware that there are authors that are totally targeted to AA readers, but why not discuss that?  Why not make people aware that some books are written specifically for AA readers and some are cross-genre books meant to be enjoyed by ALL READERS, period?  We want readers, all readers to appreciate the work of Black Authors! Our stories are stories that can be embraced around the world.
