The Risewomen show on Ujima radio is a platform to promote and share the successes and efforts of the African Caribbean heritage community of Bristol.

We began broadcasting in May 2015 and our popular weekly show features specific topics aimed at business, health and wellbeing as well awareness of events that take place in and around Bristol from within the African Caribbean Community and news from home and abroad.
It is vital that knowledge of our history is shared and the positive narrative of our achievements are made aware not only to our community but outside the Black community, we do this through our ‘Let’s talk our history’(LTOH) segment.

As well as giving a number of local entrepreneurs a chance to promote their businesses we have interviewed a number of prominent members of the community in the Rise ‘Hot seat’.

Guests have included amongst many

Mayor Marvin Rees

Mr. Roy Hackett

Founder St Paul’s Carnival Bristol

Ms. Peaches Golding OBE

Lord Lieutenant of Bristol

Mr. Tony Bullimore
