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.
