WCLK is the Jazz AND public affairs of the city. We have been since 1974. Our current partnership with the Center for Cancer Research And Therapeutic Development at Clark Atlanta University is designed to increase awareness of prostate cancer, which kills a disproportionate number of African American men.
Jazz 91.9 WCLKin partnership with the International Television Services will host the second in a series of beta field testings of OVEE, a new social screening platform for watching television starting April 1.

Jay Edwards chatted with playwright and musician Jacqueline Clay Chester on Jazz Tones Saturday. Ms. Chester's play A Conversation Between Malcolm X and President Obama: A One Act Play, will be performed at the Southwest Arts Center March 15-17 at 8pm.
Chester's play suggests its plot in the title, with Malcom's ghost appearing in the White House and the conversation that ensues between these two transformative African American leaders.
The Tony Award-Winning Musical Fela! is in performance at Atlanta's Fox Theatre through March 6. This sight and sound spectacular tells the story of one of the most compelling figures in modern African music, Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
Kuti, who essentially invented Afro-beat, blending jazz, funk, and African music stylings, attempted to live the live of a politically aware artist in the midst of military dictatorship in his native Nigeria. Fela! tells this amazing story through music and dance.
