WCLK's The Local Take with Kiplyn Primus

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am), we're talking art and legacy with artist Steve Allen. Allen is part of a Multimillion-dollar HBCU Gifting Initiative to Demand Equity in the Business of Art. Allen was born in North Carolina. Although he didn't receive formal art training, his art is part of the founding and permanent collection at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, DC. He has served as the official artist for eight Olympic Games, including the 1996 Games held in Atlanta.

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am), we’re talking Who’s Who in Black Atlanta. The program honors movers and shakers in the metro area.

Due to COVID19, this year’s event is closed to the general public, but the recognition and honor continue.

This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturdays 8am), we continue our ongoing conversation on justice reform by highlighting the work of a non-profit, The Bail Project.
