The Local Take on WCLK

Saturday, March 31 on The Local Take on  Jazz 91.9 WCLK, I spoke with Sharon Ricks, Regional Health Administrator with the Department of Health and Human Services. Their upcoming conference Stay Strong Stay Connected supports families impacted by incarceration. 

This week on The Local Take I speak with Chef Ashley Keyes of C. H. O. I. C. E. S. (Center Helping Obesity In Children End Successfully). Chef Ashley explains how the organization grew out of an informal club started by her parents and the parents of a few friends to assist the teens as they approached and defined their relationship with food. 

Saturday, March 24 at 8:00 AM on The Local Take on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, I'll explore a recent phenomenon of African Americans returning to the African continent.  I talked with Dr. Sharita Yazid about her repatriation to Ghana. She shares the mistakes people make when they move and how to do it the right way.  It is estimated that over 3,000 African Americans now reside in Accra, the capital of Ghana.

Saturday, March 24 on The Local Take on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, I talk about Women's History Month with Attorney Bettieann Hart, a member of the Georgia Coalition of Black Women.  This year the coalition will honor one of their own, Dr. Rita Jackson Samuels.  Ms. Hart explains that while Dr. Samuels got her start in the civil rights arena working for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., she went on to become the first African American woman to serve on the personal staff for a Governor of the State of Georgia. 

Saturday, March 17 on The Local Take on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, Dr. Zandraetta Tims-Cook joined me in the studio to talk about HIV/AIDS Awareness Month for Women and Girls. I asked her why we are in epidemic mode and what can women do to end the spread of HIV.

She talked about the Heather Ivy Society, a group of professional women who gather to support each other without fear of stigma. Some of the women are positive and some are there for support.
