The Local Take, Kathleen Bertrand Says Vote Tuesday

Jan 3, 2021

This week on The Local Take, I reached out to Kathleen Bertrand, singer and Black Girl Magic personified, to talk about her new song My Voice, My Vote, which I'm sure WCLK listeners have been enjoying.  

Tuesday, January 5th is the last day to vote in the Georgia Senate Run-Off Races. For more information.

 

I ask Bertrand about her family's survival during the Pandemic, and she explains that "Testimony #1" is that she's still here. 

 

 

This is the last Saturday before the January 5th Georgia Senate Run-off elections. I reached out to Maynard Eaton, an Emmy award-winning local journalist, a journalism professor, and the current National Director of Communications for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) to speak about what voting in a run-off election means. 

Eaton shares that his family has relocated to Indianapolis, where his wife picked up work during the Pandemic. Like most of us, he's zooming, working remotely, and being careful of COVID-19.
