WCLK

Atlanta is a hub for child sex traffickers and for those who use children. This is a sad fact. Many of us come into contact with exploited kids in our neighborhoods, our schools and our community each day. How can you tell if a child being trafficked? What are the warning signs, and what can you do to help end this scourge?

Jazz 91.9 WCLK listeners, members and organizations, we need your help to answer telephones during our Spring Membership Campaign,  March 14-25.   When you volunteer during our drive you get to work alongside your favorite WCLK announcer. 

NEW MUSIC: Metaphors by Alphonso Johnson

Feb 14, 2018

Alphonso Johnson has brought the fretless bass-line for generations of important groups and artists, including recording and touring with:  Weather Report, George Duke, Santana, Wayne Shorter, Pat Metheny, Sonny Rollins, Bob Weir and Phil Collins.   His new record out on Embamba is called Metaphors. Metaphors features the late great Ndugu Chancler, Patrice Rushen, Airto Moreira and others. His sound is unmistakable.

The Local Take will host PNC Bank Second  Annual Black History Month Breakfast on Wednesday, February 28 at 7:30 a.m. at the Center for Civil and Human Rights.  This year the focus is on African American Athletes who succeeded on and off the field of play. Throughout February you can hear daily vignettes from PNC Bank on  Jazz 91.9 WCLK saluting Atlanta's African American athletes.   I talked about the salutes with PNC Regional President for Georgia, Eddie Meyers.

This week on The Local Take I speak with Leah Daughtry, one of the founders of the Power Rising conference taking place in Atlanta February 23  - 25 at Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel. 

Leah shares with us how the conference came to be, explaining that they are reaching out to African American women who are the largest and most consistent voting block in the country.  Black women in the USA command 1.3 Trillion in spending power.
