Stacey Abrams

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. 

Bounce, the first and only broadcast and multi-platform entertainment network serving African Americans, has announced the full roster of honorees for the 2020 Bounce Trumpet Awards which annually recognize the outstanding accomplishments of African Americans who have succeeded against great odds and inspired success in others. This year's 29th annual ceremony - entitled The Bounce Trumpet Awards: Stand Up - will honor individuals who have risen to fight social injustice for Black Americans and will premiere on Sunday, December 13th at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.

This week on The Local Take, I reached out to Dr. William Boone from the Clark Atlanta University Political Science Department to talk about the results of the 2020 Election. For the first time since 1992, Georgia turned blue, delivering the state to President-Elect Joe Biden.

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.

Bounce, the first and only broadcast and multi-platform entertainment network serving African Americans, today announced a partnership with the NAACP to live stream the 2020 Virtual March on Washington.
