Grounds 4 Discussion With Host-Carol Williams



Carol Williams is an award winning journalist and writer whose work can be found in numerous publications.  Ms. Williams' work can also be found in a book entitled Celling America's Soul, a montage of stories written by prisoners and their supporters. The book creates a virtual visit behind the walls of the nation's penal system.


In 2001 Carol was elected by the Metro News as one of ten Black women in Philadelphia to admire. Others on the list included Pearl Bailey, Patti LaBelle and Roxanne Jones.  Williams was chosen for breaking racial barriers in the pressroom of the sport of ice hockey.


This former Black Panther says that she joined the Party to perform social services in the community. She was essential in establishing several free food, clothing and medical clinics in the community.


Her community service continued beyond the Panthers when, after studying at the Manna Bible Institute, Williams was ordained as an Evangelist in the Deliverance Evangelical faith.  Williams earned a double Bachelor's Degree in Human Welfare and Education from Temple University. She is also certified in Community Law by the Philadelphia Bar Association.


Before the turnover of Channel 48 to Christian television, Ms. Williams was invited as a guest on  48 Update, a television show hosted by Catherine Pugh as a result of the impact of her human interest articles.


Williams has received several awards from prisoners for her speaking engagements behind the walls. She brings a message of peace and hope. She was also awarded by the staff of Graterford State correctional facility.


Carol Williams is the founder of the People's Coalition For Justice and Humanity (, a grassroots effort to spread information about the worldwide human condition and help people to reconnect with their humanity.


The move to radio came when Williams realized that there had to be a platform for community members to discuss, explore and discover solutions to problems facing them. The main focus of the Grounds 4 Discussion is to provide a platform for the community to learn and grow. The show also offers the opportunity to bring individuals to the table who can effect change.


Grounds 4 Discussion is a link and a platform for public discussion and education.
