The Local Take With Kiplyn Primus

Saturday on The Local Take on WCLK  I spoke with Broadway star Chester Gregory about his one-man show "The Eve of Jackie Wilson" and how it relates to Metro-Atlanta. Chester Gregory proclaims that Jackie Wilson(known as "Mr. Entertainment" at the height of his career) is one of the most influential Rock-n-Roll artist of the 20th Century.  "The Eve of Jackie Wilson" brings to life his last concert that took place in September of 1975. This was to be a "comeback" tour for Jackie Wilson. 

For the last five years The Local Take has brought fellows in the Young African Leadership Initiative (YALI) to speak with us about the program and their countries.  Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK I spoke with three fellows from the Clark Atlanta University program:  Jean Jacques Abe of Ivory Coast, Diana Dwanah of Liberia and Linda Alwedo of Uganda. 

Saturday morning at 8am on The Local Take on WCLK I talked with AJC Senior Managing Editor Monica Richardon, co-chairperson of the Atlanta Business League Men of Influence Reception and Induction Ceremony taking place on Tuesday, July 24th at the Hyatt Regency-Downtown Atlanta at 6pm. Ms. Richardson shares that the Men of Influence program reflects the success of African-American businessmen who are making history in their endeavors. 

Saturday morning at 8am on The Local Take on WCLK  I talked with Clark Atlanta University Professor Dr. William Boone and Pioneer Blogger and Editor Yalanda Lattimore, founder of Dryerbuzz, to talk about the general malaise around this political season. Georgia's Primary Election Runoff takes place Tuesday, July 24. The General Election will take place November 6.

This week on The Local Take I speak with Travel Concierge Aiyana Mathews of Gardner-Mathews about the upcoming International Aerospace Series: Florida Conference taking place at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University November 14th - 15th in Daytona Beach, FL.
