The Jazz audience is a diverse, devoted mosaic of Atlanta's arts community and we want to make sure you hear from 'talking heads' different from the same ones you hear elsewhere, over and over, every day.
The Local Take has covered issues from sex trafficking to zero tolerance, intown property rights versus development, equal opportunities versus uneven outcomes, public health and our schools, prison reform and the prison pipeline, safety and sanity.
