This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am), we’re talking Who’s Who in Black Atlanta. The program honors movers and shakers in the metro area. For the last thirty years, this organization and platform highlighted Black professionals in most major markets, including Chicago, Charlotte, Dallas, and Washington, DC.  

Due to COVID19, this year’s event is closed to the general public, but the recognition and honor continue.

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am), I reached out to Camille Love, the Executive Director of Cultural Affairs for the City of Atlanta, about the ELEVATE Atlanta Arts Festival, taking place from September 10th - October 30th. 

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturday 8am), I welcome back Imara Canady from the AIDS Health Foundation to talk about their upcoming AIDS Walk and Festival on September 25th at Piedmont Park. Before we discuss the AIDS Walk and Festival, can we talk about the HIV epidemic in our community?  I hoped that the lockdown would decrease the transmission of HIV, but last year the numbers were continuing to rise. We are experiencing an HIV/AIDS epidemic amid the COVID-19 Pandemic.

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am), we continue our ongoing conversation on justice reform by highlighting the work of a non-profit, The Bail Project. The Bail Project is a national non-profit that provides free bail assistance to thousands of low-income people every year, reuniting families and restoring the presumption of innocence.

This week on WCLK's The Local Take, I reached out to Mental Health America in Georgia. The COVID-19 Pandemic has wreaked havoc in many lives--causing deaths, job loss, housing insecurity, and more. People who may have never considered therapy until now may find it challenging to find a mental health provider.
