Hammonds House Museum

Saturday morning at eight on WCLK's The Local Take, I talk with The Hammonds House Museum's most recent Executive Director, Leatrice Ellzy Wright, as she prepares to join the famed Apollo Theatre. Wright has been on the Atlanta cultural scene since she began working with the National Black Arts Festival as a curator and producer. Her knowledge and innovation changed the historic Hammonds House Museum in West End after just a few months.
