The Local Take

Saturday, September 10 at 7:00 a.m. on The Local Take on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, I'll speak with Attorney Sherri Jefferson of the African American Juvenile Justice Project about their new campaign the #17ps in support of advocacy and education on sex trafficking in urban communities.

Saturday, July 16 at 7:00 a.m. on The Local Take, I speak with the newly appointed Rainbow PUSH Executive Director for the Southern Region, Calvin Vismale. 

Vismale, a graduate of Morehouse College, shares with us his family background and the history of Rainbow PUSH, the beginning of which was created in 1971 by Rev. Jessie Jackson.  Vismale has a finance background and previously worked with Merrill Lynch and Lehman Bros.  He shares his thoughts on why this makes him an excellent person to lead the organization at this time.

As part of The Local Take's ongoing conversation on men and health we speak with Dr. John Wayne Wilson about mental health.   Dr. Wilson is a licensed professional counselor who operates Completely Psyched, a Decatur, GA  mental health practice.  He will also participate in the upcoming Local Take Men's Community Health Forum on Saturday, June 25 at Northlake Mall, 4800 Briarcliff Rd, NE, Atlanta, GA 30345 from 2:00 p.m. until  6:00 p.m.

The Local Take will promote Men's Health in June, culminating with our Men's Community Health Forum on Saturday, June 25 at Northlake Mall from 2:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.  We start this month talking about mental health and surviving traumatic events.   On Saturday, June 4 at 7:00 a.m. on The Local Take, I'll talk with C. David Moody, well-known, longstanding Atlanta developer.   His name adorns construction sites from Mercedes Benz Stadium to the Atlanta History Center.  He's also the victim of childhood sexual abuse. He recently wrote a book about his journey entitled Fighting Through The Fear.

Programming on WCLK is made possible in part by support from the Atlanta Business League, presenting their 38th Annual CEO Appreciation Luncheon on Tuesday May 10 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis Hotel Downtown. This event benefits the expansion of ABL's Youth Entrepreneur Programs and the Business Enrichment Series for Entrepreneur Development. WCLK will be attending this event, and we encourage all of our members to consider doing the same.
