The Local Take With Kiplyn Primus

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.

The Local Take talks to Toni Simmons Henson, founder and director of Atlanta Black Theatre Festival  to share information about this year's event. Toni explains that each year they aim to make it bigger and better and they succeeded again for 2017.

Jazz 91.9 WCLK is live from the Atlanta Business League Super Tuesday Conference at the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel on September 26.   On Saturday, September  23 at 7:00 a.m. on WCLK,  The Local Take talked with Alexis Davis Smith, co-chair of the Atlanta Business League 33rd Annual Super Tuesday Conference.  Alexis explained that the event has three components:   1) the Women of Vision Breakfast;  2) concurrent workshops; and, 3) the awards luncheon.
