Clark Atlanta University

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.

Erykah Badu is a name that many recognize. She is named the First Lady of Neo-Soul, but did you know she attended Grambling State University, a Historically Black College and University/HBCU? Join Jazz 91.9 WCLK as we probe the proud unheralded history of HBCUs in a special screening of Stanley Nelson's new documentary Tell them We Are Rising on the historic HBCU campus of Clark Atlanta University.  The event will take place on November 15, 7:00 p.m.

Jazz 91.9 WCLK celebrates Clark Atlanta University Homecoming Week by recognizing another proud Panther success - filmmaker Nnegest Likké, who has returned this week to campus to host a premiere of her new film Everything But A Man.   

I spoke with Likké this morning about her work and her CAU experience and the influence of CAU's Dr. Herb Eichelberger.   For a complete list of CAU Homecoming 2017 events, click here.

CAU Now Lifting Every Voice on WCLK tells the good news about events and initiatives happening at Clark Atlanta University, one of America's greatest HBCUs. We were joined recently by Dr. Obie Clayton, CAU Director of the Center for Undergraduate Research and Creativity, and Director of the CAU QEP. Dr. Clayton discusses the University’s Quality Enhancement Plan, or QEP, and CAU’s  focus as part of this on Mentored Undergraduate Scholarly Endeavors, or MUSE.
