Holiday Music on WCLK: Vincent Ingala-Christmas

7 hours ago

WCLK listeners know Vincent Ingala from his local performances and hearing his music on the station at various times. He's a multi-instrumentalist and a contemporary Jazz mainstay. We're playing Christmas songs from his recent release of the same name via CD Baby, including My Favorite Things.

Saturday on The Local Take I spoke with Charles Walker of the Urban League of Greater Atlanta about YouthBuild. Mr. Walker explains that this program began in New York when young men were asked what they wanted to do in their neighborhoods. The program is designed for young people between the ages of 16 and 24 who are interested in a career in the construction trades.

Programming on Jazz 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by  Suite Food Lounge, located at 375 Luckie Street in Downtown Atlanta, presenting for one show, one night only, Thursday December 14, Trumpeter Willie Bradley.

On the December 9 edition of The Local Take, I spoke with  with Clark Atlanta University Political Science Professor Dr. William Boone about the Atlanta Mayoral runoff that happened last week.   Keisha Lance Bottoms won the vote over her opponent Mary Norwood by fewer than 800 votes.   Although there has been a call for a recount, Dr. Boone expects the mayor-elect to be installed as Mayor of Atlanta.   I asked Dr. Boone about the schism with Atlanta's old guard and new.  We also discussed Atlanta's changing demographics and the future of African American leadership in the city.

TV One has released its first teaser trailer for the upcoming original movie, “Behind the Movement.” The film debuts this February as part of the network’s Black History Month programming.

 

“Behind the Movement” is a retelling of how Rosa Parks‘ refusal to give up her seat launched the history-making Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955-56. The film will reveal the untold story of how a group of everyday people decided this incident was the right time to take a stand for their civil rights and demand equal treatment.
