This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturday mornings at eight), I reached out to tech entrepreneur Ngozi Ahanotu about her upcoming family event Blk Quest.  Blk Quest is a family-friendly scavenger hunt in Atlanta to find the city's best Black-owned businesses.  Ngozi Ahanotu explains that she always enjoyed scavenger hunts and thought this was a great way to promote her platform in support of Black-Owned companies in Atlanta.

Join me Saturday morning at eight for WCLK's The Local Take. I'll be talking about the recent devastating earthquake in Haiti and what you can do to help.  

Saturday morning on WCLK's The Local Take we continue our coverage of COVID-19 in our community. With the return of in-person school and the rise of COVID-19 variants, this period focuses on children.  Thankfully many systems in metro Atlanta have mask mandates in place. Science tells us that masks are essential to protect children under twelve who cannot be vaccinated.  Hopefully, our 12 – to 17-year-olds are participating in the call to become vaccinated.  Another detriment to our children was the virtual school environment last year.

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am), I speak with DeKalb County Commissioner Lorraine Cochran-Johnson, representing Super District 7. We discuss the Eviction Moratorium extended in DeKalb County before the CDC announced an extension nationwide. Specifically in states where the COVID-19 delta variant is spreading.

This week on WCLK's The Local Take I welcome Dr. Kwesi deGraft Hanson to talk about keeping sacred lands sacred. Developers planned to turn Coastal Georgia's Butler Island Plantation site into a restaurant and brewery in the last few months. In the last few weeks, the City of Savannah approved plans by the Salvation Army to put transitional housing, a homeless shelter, on the site where The Weeping Time sale took place and where our current commemoration program takes place. President Jimmy Carter saved Butler Island when he spoke out.
