Concord Records has now released the album featuring the same performers, including Gerald Albright, Rick Braun, Richard Elliot and Aubrey Logan.

I was joined last Saturday morning at 8:00am on The Local Take On WCLK by Sistagraphy. Sistagraphy is a collective of African-American women who photograph their and our stories. I spoke with Catherine Alston and Sue Ross about their organization. I asked the ladies about the changes in photography that have occured since the start of the organization. Film and dark rooms were the technology used at their inception.  Now many photographers use digital or phone cameras to capture images.

The presence of your gift was felt, on June 28 as over 200 volunteers gathered at the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB). We filled bags for ACFB and The Soulful Project, which provides nutritious food for families and children in transition.  We worked haaarrrrrd! We were also tasked to fill over 1,000 back packs for delivery serving some of the  600+ Food Bank partner agencies in 29 counties throughout Greater Atlanta and North Georgia.  It is a really warm feeling to be able to help make someone else feel better.
