Guitarist Freddie Fox's new single My Crusade is a departure from his usual uptempo jamming sound found on last year’s Top it Off. It comes from his latest album Limitless. Freddie elects on this release to just play some soothing guitar with a hint of island flavor. This is one of those songs that will compliment whatever you may be doing. It’s perfect for middays when you’re at work or while you’re getting that early evening jog in.

TOKYO — U.S. long jumper Brittney Reese has been racking up individual championship titles for more than a decade.

Three Olympic medals, including a new silver one on Tuesday. Eight world championship medals.

Is she the best long jumper of all time? "I am," she said. "Point-blank."

Reese, 34, doesn't hold the world record, but she has established herself as an extraordinary athlete over an astonishing number of years.

Now, as she ends her fourth and final Olympics, she thinks it's high time she gets the recognition she deserves.

Aug 1, 2021

I’ve been listening a lot to the recent release by Alto Saxophonist, Producer and Arranger Steve Slagle. It's called Nascentia(Panorama Records) . It features a song-cycle of mostly new compositions by Slagle. He leads a first rate sextet on this record that includes Jeremy Pelt on trumpet, Clark Gayton on trombone, Bruce Barth on piano, Jason Tiemann on drums, and Ugonna Okegwo on bass.

Check out this week's edition of UPFRONT Inside the Entertainment Industry. It features Lee Foster, executive director of Georgia State's Rialto Center for the Arts, David Quinn of TV One’s ATL Homicide plus actor and content creator Deji LaRay from Bounce TV's newest dramedy, Johnson. 

Warner Bros. Pictures have released the highly anticipated trailer for King Richard starring two-time Oscar nominated actor Will Smith. 

Check out the trailer for Bounce TV’s newest dramedy series, Johnson, premiering this Sunday, August 1st with back-to-back episodes starting at 8 pm EST. The series is centered on four life-long best friends in Atlanta, all of whom share the same last name (Johnson), and revolves around what happens when the four guys find themselves in vastly different places in their lives and it begins to threaten their bond. 

 

This week on The Local Take, I reached out to a farmer in our state Stacie Marshall. Marshall inherited her family farm and learned that generations ago, her ancestors enslaved African Americans. Seven were listed of historical documents about the farm.

The Local Take: Family Farms, Race And History with Stacie Marshall
