Blood Needed Every Summer - Donate If You Can

Jul 25, 2017

The Local Take speaks with Seandell Wright of LifeSouth Community Blood Center about the urgent need for blood donors.

Summer is historically a slow time for blood donations, and our blood centers have all hit a critical point for blood donors. Patients and hospitals are still dependent on blood donors to help save lives.  A pint of blood can assist 3 people with life saving materials. 

Wayne Early is an economist and realtor who is a member of the South Dekalb Improvement Association.  He spoke with us about Home Valuation and Appraisal Discrimination. 

We discussed lagging home prices in African American neighborhoods and the challenges that home owners face when selling their homes. He spoke about the Realtor rules and regulations that have begun to evolve but once considered it unethical to show African Americans homes in majority White neighborhood.
