Center for Civil and Human Rights

This week on The Local Take on WCLK we feature conversations from an event I attended in June--the Atlanta Braves Hank Aaron Heritage Week and press conference  held at the Center for Civil and Human Rights. The 2018 honorees included former US Attorney General Eric Holder, Sports Reporter Emeritus at NBC Bob Costas and the Man himself Hammering Hank Aaron along with the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico Carmen Yulin Cruz.

Kiplyn Primus caught up with The Center for Civil and Human Rights on The Local Take on WCLK. They have launched a new platform in support of the LGBT community.

We speak with Ryan Roemerman, interim executive director of the center's LGBT Institute and Tracee McDaniels founder of the Juxtaposed Center for Transformation and a member of the programming board.

The upcoming CNN DIALOGUES, “Athletes and Social Responsibility: Expectations in the 21st Century,” will be held Thursday, August 21 at 7 p.m. The event will be one of two Dialogues held in the 2014 calendar year, and the first Dialogue hosted at the new Center for Civil and Human Rights – which opened June 23 in downtown Atlanta.
