Jazz 91.9 WCLK is Panther proud to join Clark Atlanta University officials, stakeholders and dignitaries at the Georgia State Capitol for CAU DAY during the 2016 Georgia Legislative Session.   We met old friends, and made some new ones.  We even added new Jazz 91.9 WCLK members!   And, added a dose of Jazz preservation to the agenda for the day under the Gold Dome.   Mark Angel called in and talked about the afternoon of activities with Jamal Ahmad during the SOUL of Jazz.

Their birth names were Atiba, Binta, Hassan...we never knew them.   Yet they intimate their innermost thoughts, fears, yearnings and regrets in Clark Atlanta University Faculty,  Author, Daniel Black's fifth and newest novel, The Coming  (St. Martin's Press, 2015).   This soul-shaking book is so powerful that leaders, clergy and academics nationwide are praising it as a crucial Sankofa moment: an opportunity to learn from the past lessons that must inform the future.

Clark Atlanta University President Carlton E. Brown is leaving CAU at the end of June after seven years at the helm of one of America's great HBCUs. Dr. Brown has been a friend of WCLK from the beginning, and we wish he and his bride the very best for the times to come.

We plan to welcome incoming President Dr. Ronald A. Johnson to the WCLK microphone when the time is right, but we wanted to chat with Dr. Brown and have him pause and reflect on his time at the AUC.  He joined Jamal Ahmad on The Soul of Jazz to talk about it, and to enjoy some well-played Coltrane by Jamal.
