African American History

WCLK's The Local Take along with Dr. Kwesi deGraft Hanson will present The Weeping Time during the Juneteenth Celebration at the Atlanta History Center on June 15th at 1pm.  Saturday on the show I talked with Ananda Blalock and Trevion King, members of the Andrew and Walter Young YMCA Teen Leadership Council who joined us on the 160th Commemoration trip in March of this year. 

This week on WCLK's The Local Take I spoke with community activists Derik Rinehart and Renaldo Porter Moore about the history behind the Porter Road Community and their campaign to get DeKalb County to preserve the historical significance and graveyard that is part of of their legacy.
