The Local Take on WCLK

In light of the protest and calls for change from various communities I reached out to Chuck Cogliandro leader with the Kumandi Drum Circle and Coming To The Table.  When I first met Chuck, I was a little confused, but thought he was bi-racial. He'd been recommended as an African drum teacher, after meeting him a few more times I realized he was not bi-racial, he was a white guy.  

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am) I speak with Jacqueline Thornton, Director of Population Health at National Church Residences.  This organization provides affordable senior housing at 9 locations in metro Atlanta.  They work throughout the country and have been in existence for over 50 years. 

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am) I talked to Fulton County Commissioner Joe Carn about the county's response to the COVID19 Pandemic. Commissioner Carn speaks about the county's rapid response to aid and fund organizations in the community to support citizens with everything from food insecurity to emergency assistance with rent and utilities. 

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I speak with Dr. Thaddeus Bell founder of "Closing The Gap in Healthcare" about the health disparities that put our Community at greater risk for COVID-19. 

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I began reaching out to faith leaders to help talk us through the pandemic.  We started with my former classmate, Apostle Darryl Winston from Greater Works Ministries in Atlanta's Lakewood Community.
