The Local Take on WCLK

I talked on The Local Take on WCLK with Russell Patterson from AID Atlanta about the upcoming WORLD AIDS DAY Conference on December 1st. 

I ask Russell to share the good news regarding HIV/AIDS.  He speaks to us about PrEP a product that you can use to decrease your exposure HIV and PEP a product that is used after unintended exposure to HIV to prevent infection.

On the November 16 edition of The Local Take on Jazz 91.9 WCLK we celebrate Ballethnic as they present the 25th showing of The Urban Nutcracker for the holiday season.  Performances will be held on December 9 and 10 at the King Chapel on the campus of Morehouse College. Ballethnic founded by Waverly Lucas II and Nena Gilreath is the first African American ballet company in Atlanta.

The Atlanta Business League (ABL) will host their 84th Annual Meeting on Tuesday, November 14 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis.  At this Annual Meeting business leaders are inducted into the ABL Business Hall of Fame.   On the November 11 edition of The Local Take, we speak with two of the inductees, Noel Khalil and Rodney K. Strong.

On the November 11 edition of The Local Take in support of the Jazz 91.9 WCLK Screening for Stanley Nelson's new documentary Tell Them We Are Rising I speak with two HBCU graduates with strong ties to Atlanta. 

This week on The Local Take I speak with Lee Reid, Executive Director and Myola Smith, Project Manager at the Atlanta Citizens Review Board(ACRB).

Mr. Reid explains that the ACRB is an independent organization that works with both citizens and the Atlanta Police Department. The last time we spoke with the ACRB it was to launch their anonymous tip line.  Mr. Reid provides an updates and encourages citizens to use this option if needed.
