The Local Take With Kiplyn Primus

Programming on Jazz 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by support from the Atlanta Business League (ABL), presenting the 40th Annual CEO Appreciation Luncheon on Tuesday, May 15 at 11:30 a.m. at Hyatt Regency Atlanta. This annual event recognizes local CEOs for outstanding participation in minority vendor development and community involvement.

This month for The Local Take I speak with Ryan Kilgore, Clark Atlanta University alumnus and founder of the Kilgore Music Foundation.  Each year the foundation promotes a month long instrument drive to provide students in our community with instruments that they can use for school and community band programs.

Ryan Kilgore shares how the foundation came into being and why it is so important to expose our children to music. He mentions that because he played the saxophone he has visited every continent except Antarctica and stuck his foot in almost every ocean on the planet. 

The Local Take on WCLK has covered sex trafficking issues from the beginning as part of our engagement with the community. I spoke with Shawn Smash-Jett of Wealthy Divas and Shoptalk with Shay about her role as an activist against human trafficking. Shawn shares with our listeners that she attended the Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Global Summit held this month in Washington, DC.  She was there when the federal government shut down BackPage.com a site used to facilitate sex trafficking.

Saturday, April 21 on The Local Take on  Jazz 91.9 WCLK, I spoke with Lolita Jackson about the Camellia Rose Links presenting the documentary film MAYNARD at a fundraiser for graduates of Maynard Jackson High School.   The Camellia Rose Links invites everyone to join them for the screening of MAYNARD at the Carter Center on  Saturday, April 28 at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.  Each screening will be followed by a panel discussion features people who knew and worked with Maynard Jackson.

This week on The Local Take I was joined by Dr. William Boone a professor in Clark Atlanta University's Department of Political Science about the Tuesday's deadline to register to vote and the May Gubernatorial Primary for our state.
