Clark Atlanta University

On the December 9 edition of The Local Take, I spoke with  with Clark Atlanta University Political Science Professor Dr. William Boone about the Atlanta Mayoral runoff that happened last week.   Keisha Lance Bottoms won the vote over her opponent Mary Norwood by fewer than 800 votes.   Although there has been a call for a recount, Dr. Boone expects the mayor-elect to be installed as Mayor of Atlanta.   I asked Dr. Boone about the schism with Atlanta's old guard and new.  We also discussed Atlanta's changing demographics and the future of African American leadership in the city.

There are many reasons to support Jazz 91.9 WCLK. Reason 18 is the year end tax deduction. WCLK is a non-profit public radio station licensed to Clark Atlanta University. When you make a donation to WCLK as part of your year-end giving before December 31, part or all of your donation may qualify towards an income tax deduction. Make a donation before December 31 and you'll be automatically entered to win one of three Amazon Echo devices powered by Alexa.

The November edition of CAU Now-Lifting Every Voice on WCLK featured Dr. Jenny L. Jones, Dean of the Whitney M. Young, Jr. School of Social Work at Clark Atlanta University. We discussed the undergraduate, graduate and doctorate levels of the program, current collaborations and student engagement initiatives, and the school's upcoming 2020 Centennial. We also talked about Whitney M. Young, Jr., who was a nationally known civil rights activist and academic who was the first Dean of the school that now bears his name at CAU.

Join Jazz 91.9 WCLK and Clark Atlanta University for #GivingTuesday, a nationwide online giving challenge held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday giving season.  On Tuesday, November 28, invest in the values that are most important to you.  Whether it's Jazz, education, scholarship and/or community engagement,  give a gift that keeps on giving.  

Check out the November 18 edition of "UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry." My special guests included award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson Jr., who stopped by to chat about his new Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Documentary, "Tell Them We Are Rising." The project puts a spotlight on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and their relevance to American society and culture. The film will debut during Black History Month on February 19, 2018.
