Spelman College

Saturday morning at eight on WCLK's The Local Take I speak with Julia Davis, a Spelman College and Southern California Film School graduate home during the Pandemic. Many of us had goals of cleaning closets, planting gardens, or making sourdough bread during the pandemic downtime, but Ms. Davis beat us all by starting a non-profit organization to provide rides to the polls during the early voting weeks.

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am), I'm talking all things voting with Mo Ivory, Creative Council at Fair Fight Action. We have one party in our country doing everything they can to suppress the vote. While citizens are doing everything they can to vote safely in the Pandemic. Fair Fight Action was born out of the tightly contested 2018 Georgia governor's race between Now-Governor Brian Kemp and Stacy Abrams. From that adversity, Fair Fight Action was created to support free and fair elections across the country.


This week's UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry is all about #BlackExcellence. It features conversations with jazz icon Terence Blanchard plus actress turned fitness guru A.J. Johnson.
