This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am), we're talking about Traveling While Black, an immersive exhibit at Georgia Tech Ferst Center for the Arts. The exhibition is in open spaces on either side of the lobby box office.

WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am) reached out to our resident historian and former Atlanta Mayor and Ambassador Andrew Young to speak about our past, current, and future. I asked Ambassador Young to share stories about his comrades that we lost in the last year. 

  He spoke about the Montgomery Bus Boycott from 1950 and the student sit-in from 1960 and then mentioned that C. T. Vivian started sit-ins in Peoria, IL, in 1947. 

This is the last Saturday before the January 5th Georgia Senate Run-off elections. I reached out to Maynard Eaton, an Emmy award-winning local journalist, a journalism professor, and the current National Director of Communications for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) to speak about what voting in a run-off election means. 

Eaton shares that his family has relocated to Indianapolis, where his wife picked up work during the Pandemic. Like most of us, he's zooming, working remotely, and being careful of COVID-19.
