The Local Take on WCLK

The Local Take: Donna Brazille Talks Election Hacks

Dec 6, 2017

The Local Take had an opportunity to speak with Ms. Donna Brazille a democratic strategist about her new book HACKS. The controversial book is still on the New York Times bestseller list and contains a break-down of the 2016 Democratic presidential race.

On the December 2 edition of The Local Take on  Jazz 91.9 WCLK we talked about the Maternal mortality rate, which is rising in the USA.   I first became aware of this research from an article in the Los Angeles Times which indicated that the rates of death are rising most in the African-American community. Then I saw a report from the British Broadcasting Company (BBC) on the same subject. I reached out to Dr. Karla Booker an obstetrician and gynecolgist, who serves on Georgia’s Maternal Mortality Review Committee.

On the November 16 edition of The Local Take on Jazz 91.9 WCLK we celebrated 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.

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

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.

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. 

Noel Khalil is the founder and owner of Columbia Residential, LLC which  began in 1991. I speak with Mr. Khalil about his decision to become an entrepreneur.  He shares that his business focuses on affordable housing.
