CAU Now-Lifting Every Voice is an occasional public affairs program airing at 8:30am Saturday mornings on Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK that tells the good news about what's going on at Clark Atlanta University. This morning's program includes a conversation with CAU Department of Public Safety Chief of Police Debra A. Williams. Chief Williams has nearly 35 years in law enforcement, primarily with the Atlanta Police Department where she retired with the rank of Major. As CAU's police chief her job includes watching over CAU students, staff and faculty.

Congratulations to Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK General Manager Wendy Williams, who has been selected by Clark Atlanta University as one of CAU's "New School" Jazz Influentials, as part of the University's Jazz Appreciation Month celebration. Well done, Wendy! Full information about this honor can be found here.

Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK turns 45 on Wednesday, April 10, and you're invited to celebrate with cake and a concert from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. for Jazz at the Gazebo in front of the Atlanta University Center Robert Woodruff Library, 111 James P. Brawley Drive SW.  Confirmed artists include Trey Daniels, Dara Carter, BK Jackson, Kim Cage Riley and Taryn Newborne. On April 10, 1974 WCLK went on the air, licensed to Clark College as a non-commercial student radio station. Much has changed, but we were playing Jazz then, and we're still playing it now.
