The Local Take, Kathleen Bertrand Says Vote Tuesday

Jan 3, 2021

This week on The Local Take, I reached out to Kathleen Bertrand, singer and Black Girl Magic personified, to talk about her new song My Voice, My Vote, which I'm sure WCLK listeners have been enjoying.  

Tuesday, January 5th is the last day to vote in the Georgia Senate Run-Off Races. For more information.


I ask Bertrand about her family's survival during the Pandemic, and she explains that "Testimony #1" is that she's still here. 



Join AARP Atlanta for an evening of inspiration with special musical guest Kenny Lattimore on Wednesday, December 9 at 8 pm as we look forward to the holidays! AARP will provide you with the information and resources you need to make a plan and vote safely during Georgia's special run-off elections on Jan. 5.

Kenny Lattimore is a singer-songwriter known for his 1996 breakthrough single “Never Too Busy” and the wedding staple “For You.” He earned Grammy and Soul Train Award nominations, Top 10 singles, Top 20 R&B albums, and an NAACP Image Award for Best New Artist.

During this political season on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturday mornings 8am), I've reached out to a few of the grassroots organizations that have helped turn Georgia blue.  This Saturday I talk with with Melody Bray from Georgia55, a  group of millennial women based out of the Goizueta Business School at Emory. Their stated aim is to make voting easy, fun, and delicious.

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.

The Local Take: Andrew Young On The Environment

Mar 15, 2020

Saturday morning at 8am on WCLK's The Local Take I spoke with former mayor Ambassador Andrew Young, who turns 88 on Thursday, March 12th.  I ran into Ambassador Young at a social event a few weeks ago where he was speaking about the Mississippi River and the levee system that used technology developed by the Dutch. The system in New Orleans was installed in 1936. I mentioned that like New Orleans, Amsterdam is also below sea level, but you never hear about that city flooding.  He says we can access the same technology for our country.
