The Local Take wih Kiplyn Primus

The Local Take: Redemption And Cyntoia Brown Long

Nov 27, 2019

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I speak with Cyntoia Brown Long, who was granted clemency for a murder she committed in self defense as a "teenage prostitute" in  Tennessee in 2004.

She explained to me that in 2004 young girls with pimps were not considered victims, they were considered "fast."  She speaks about seeing a television commercial that asked What Is 13? After finally paying attention to the advertisement she realized that she had been a victim of sex trafficking. 

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I talked with Jaia Thomas from Diverse Representation, the first directory for African American professionals in the entertainment industry.  

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I spoke with Sophia Nelson about Onward: A Harriet Hike, taking place on Saturday, November 2nd at the Southview Cemetery.

            Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take, we continued our series of interviews with the 2019 Clark Atlanta University School of Business Young African Leadership Initiative - Mandela Fellows.

This week on WCLK's The Local Take at 8am Saturday I speak with Dean Ken Walden and Minister Brenda Bennefield from the Gammon Seminary at the Interdenominational Theological Center (ITC) about their upcoming Spiritual Retreats. 

Dean Walden explains the seminaries relationship to ITC and the historical nature of the center where several seminaries are housed. He speaks to this campus being one of a kind.  I ask him about why Gammon decided to offer spiritual retreats.
