In September of 2000, Truth & Education Corp. was created to provide charitable assistance to the needy, design programs that championed transparency and individual accountability. Also, to engage in other charitable and educational tax exempt activities. When successful, develop a communication network that would encourage local and worldwide participation - "Radio." The new KSAP-96.9 FM/LP - "The Breeze" radio station, began broadcasting in September 2004 providing our local communities with valuable information that has helped to empower citizens educationally, spiritually, economically, and socially.

My father, the late Walter Mosely Sr., a real estate broker and former City Councilman, once took me as a boy, to a bank while completing a real estate transaction. He told me to "take a seat and we will leave when I finish this meeting." When he left, I instantly disobeyed him and boarded the elevator then pushed the button to the top floor of the building.
Once the doors opened, I saw a man standing behind a glass wall speaking into a microphone. I could hear a voice coming out of a small radio sitting on a table next to my opened elevator door. When I put it together that it was his voice coming out of that box (radio), It blew my mind!
Hey, 40 years later, my dream is realized and now it is my voice and the voices of many emanating from similar boxes at our public radio station. Yes, they call me "The Flash" because I'm in and out of the studio for various reasons in a flash. Believe it or not, it still blows my mind and to this day, I continue to thank God for this gift and this tremendous responsibility to serve others.
