The Local Take With Kiplyn Primus

This week on The Local Take I speak with Clark Atlanta University alumna Nnegest Likké, an award winning film director, screenwriter and producer.

I ask Nnegest about her start and her first movie. She speaks about doing work in "the laboratory" explaining that there is no easy way to build your expertise.  She read every book that had been written about making movies. She talks about the screenplays she wrote that were bad, but she kept reading and writing until she thought she had something.

This month is National Disability Employment Awareness Month and I speak with Myrna Clayton about a non-profit organization called Abel 2 that will host a Career Day for the differently-abled on Saturday, October 28th at 8AM at the Graves Elementary School in Norcross.  People with different disabilities will share information about their careers. 

The Local Take Talks "Health As A Human Right"

Oct 14, 2017

The Local Take Talks about the Health As A Human Right with Dr. Kim Ramsey-White, Director of Undergraduate Programs in School of Public Health at Georgia State University.

Saturday I spoke with Terrisita Terry about Nicholas House and their upcoming "Sleep Out" fundraiser on October 13th. 

The Nicholas House is a non-profit organization dedicated to assisting homeless families making the transition from homelessness to self-sufficiency. Ms. Terry explains that often families who seek shelter are separated by sex or age and not allowed to be housed together. At Nicholas House they ensure that families can all be housed together no matter their make-up. 

This week on The Local Take I was joined in the studio by Olympic Legend Jackie Joyner Kersee. Jacqueline "Jackie" Joyner-Kersee is an American retired track and field athlete, ranked among the all-time greatest athletes in the heptathlon as well as long jump.  She mentioned that her last Olympics Games were the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.
