Dr. Jenny L. Jones

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am), I'm speaking with Dr. Jenny L. Jones, Dean and Professor at the Whitney M. Young, Jr. School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University. Dr. Jones is here to discuss last year's school centennial, and a new book that has resulted.

 

Even though they weren't able to have a proper celebration due to COVID-19, they commemorated the occasion by publishing a book: Find A Way or Make One-A Documentary History of Clark Atlanta University (1920 - 2020) by Alma Carten, Ph.D. I ask how the book came about. 

 

Join us Saturday morning at 8:30 for the December edition of CAU Now on Jazz 91.9 WCLK. Clark Atlanta University Director of News and Media Relations Jolene Butts Freeman is your host. She'll be joined on this informative program by CAU Vice President and Chief Advancement Officer Sam Burston to discuss plans for the future. Jolene will also be joined by Dr. Jenny L. Jones, Dean and Professor at the Whitney M. Young, Jr. School of Social Work, for a conversation about the school's hundred year history and the continuing relevance of Social Work degrees in the current times.
