Programming on Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by our friends at Suite Food Lounge, 375 Luckie Street in the heart of Atlanta's Downtown entertainment district. This Thursday, October 25, the Suite Jazz Series presents the Joey Sommerville Birthday Bash. Joey Sommerville is one of Atlanta and the world's top horn players, and he's an old friend of WCLK. Doors for this special event open at 6:30pm, with dinner and Jazz beginning at 7:30pm.

The African Heritage Studies Association/AHSA is holding a series of events in and around Clark Atlanta University October 25-27 as a part of the organization's 2018 Conference, celebrating their 49th Anniversary. AHSA was founded in 1969 by Dr. John Henrik Clark, Leonard Jeffries, James Henry Turner, Shelby Lewis, and Asa Hilliard, among others. It was formed as part of a demand to changes in the Eurocentric approaches to African Studies and the resulting marginalization of African-descendant scholars.
