Historic Preservation And Jordan Hall

Oct 3, 2017
Atlanta Preservation Center

The Edmund Asa Ware School was one of the first elementary schools for African American children in Atlanta, built in 1922. Today it is known as Jordan Hall and is considered by many to be a building of historic significance. The YMCA plans to redevelop this AUC-area site and may well level Jordan hall in that process. What is historic preservation and why is it important? We spoke with William Hover, Section Chief & Deputy State Historic Preservation Officer for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Historic Preservation Division.

CAU Now Lifting Every Voice on WCLK tells the good news about events and initiatives happening at Clark Atlanta University, one of America's greatest HBCUs. We were joined recently by Dr. Obie Clayton, CAU Director of the Center for Undergraduate Research and Creativity, and Director of the CAU QEP. Dr. Clayton discusses the University’s Quality Enhancement Plan, or QEP, and CAU’s  focus as part of this on Mentored Undergraduate Scholarly Endeavors, or MUSE.

Jazz 91.9 WCLK is in need of volunteer phone operators to help take calls during the WCLK Fall Membership Campaign. The campaign takes place October 4 through 15 in WCLK studios.

 

Volunteering is a great way to support Atlanta’s only Jazz station. And, spend some time with your favorite Jazz 91.9 WCLK announcers. If you have a few hours to spare come on over and spend some time at WCLK.
