upfront SIRIUS XM 081322 A.jpg

Check out this week's edition of UPFRONT/Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry.

In the show's first segment, we’re headed to Atlanta’s High Museum of Art to chat with Michael Rooks, curator of their current exhibition Bob Thompson: This House Is Mine. The show features larger-than-life painting and images from Thompson’s short-lived career and how it was shaped by his affinity for jazz music. Bob Thompson: This House Is Mine is on display now through September 11.

And in the second half of the show, we’re talking to award-winning playwright, actress, author and comedienne—-Trey Anthony about the multimedia tour for her new book, Black Girls in Love with Herself. In the book, Trey encourages Black women to embrace self-care and to take into account their unique challenges, like trauma passed down from one generation to the next and much more.

We're also honoring the life and legacy of iconic Motown songwriter Lamont Dozier of Holland-Dozier-Holland by playing classic tunes that he co-wrote for The Four Tops, The Supremes and The Isley Brothers.

UPFRONT/Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry is produced from the WCLK studios on the campus of historic Clark Atlanta University.
