Many Americans tell the story of Black-Jewish political relations like this: First, there was the Civil Rights movement, where the two groups got along great.

TV One has released a trailer for its new true crime series, ATL HOMICIDE. It premieres on Monday, July 9 at 10 p.m. 

 

Veteran homicide detectives David Quinn and Vince Velazquez of Atlanta PD have stories-and they're sharing some of the grittiest of them all. As part of the network's "True Crime Mondays," ATL Homicide dives into these stories with detectives Quinn and Velazquez as they recount their personal experiences solving these cases, alongside astonishing dramatic re-creations that transport viewers into each case.

Today's UPFRONT was on fiyah! It featured my one-on-one interviews with Broadway actress Terry Burrell, iconic film actor Omar Epps and the Official Soul Sisters - Keisha Jackson, Heather Hayes and Dr. Yamma Brown. 

This week on The Local Take I share a joint project with the Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority which allowed me to attend HLTH The Future of Healthcare conference in Las Vegas last month. This inaugural conference was on the confluence of technology and healthcare. One of the most impactful panels, “Your Zip Code Supersedes Your Genetic Code,” included input from Robert Brook, Chair of Healthcare Services from the RAND Corporation. I spoke with Mr. Brook about his presentation and what he thinks about the Future of Healthcare in the USA. 

Join me for Jazz Tones on Jazz 91.9 WCLK Sunday, June 3 from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.  This week I'll be talking to Allan Harris, a native New Yorker and singer-songwriter, who is considered a classic romantic crooner.

Atlanta-based Jazz Rennaissance Man Joe Gransden has a new record out on Cafe 290 Records, Go Getta. The title track comes courtesy of Friend of  Jazz 91.9 WCLK Kipper Jones, and features a solo turn from Kenny G.   

Gransden has wanted to lead his own big band since his youthful days as fourth trumpet in the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. On Go Getta he brings together his big band, seen live locally by many ATL Jazz fans, for a tight, swinging set of 14 songs. 

Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Jazz 91.9 WCLK tent during Memorial Day Weekend at the 41st Annual Atlanta Jazz Festival at Piedmont Park.  We did our no rain dance and it worked. Everyone enjoyed great performances at the Contemporary Stage which included : Terri Lyne Carrington and Social Science; Jazzmeia Horn; and, Cory Henry and The Funk Apostles, among others.
