The Call to True Beauty – August Edition

Aug 1, 2014
Shed Jackson

Join Host, Daphne Walker, Wednesday, August 6, 6:00 p.m. for the August edition of The Call To True Beauty on WCLK.  We will  talk about domestic violence from the law enforcement perspective with Atlanta Police Department, Special Victims Unit, Detective Janet Brady.  We will also feature Louis Negron, a community advocate doing his part to make sure non-English speaking victims of Domestic Violence are properly heard. 

Kiplyn Primus was joined Saturday morning July 12 for The Local Take, as she welcomed participants in the 2014 Young African Leaders Initiative.  The  Obama administration’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) is a signature effort to invest in the next generation of African leaders. Nearly 1 in 3 Africans are between the ages of 10 and 24, and approximately 60 percent of Africa’s total population is below the age of 35.

What would you do if you suspected a friend was a victim of domestic violence?  What would you do if you saw someone being threatened or abused in a DV situation?  That's what we talked about on The Call To True Beauty on WCLK Wednesday, July 2.

The Call To True Beauty asks some hard questions this month.  Do jokes and images of domestic violence in popular culture pave the way for tolerance of abusers?  Just what do women 'owe' men?  Do popular videos and music and images filled with misogyny and women as objects make it easier for men to abuse women?

Host Daphne Walker, President and CEO of Atlanta's Partnership Against Domestic Violence, will be joined by Tomeka Daniel, Senior Attorney supervising Domestic Violence for Georgia Legal Services, Macon Division.  They will talk about it, and take your phone calls live.

The 17th Annual Duke Pearson and James Hardy Patterson Foundation, Incorporated Summer Jazz Camp takes place June 9-13 from 10a-4p at the Park Street Music and Art Complex located on the campus of Clark Atlanta University.  This summer jazz camp offers elementary, middle and high school students a variety of approaches to jazz.  For registration information about this year's camp, contact 404-880-8208.
