Farewell Atlanta Griots…

Posted on Saturday, March 24th, 2007.

Radio partners WABE and WCLK hosted a StoryCorps Griot reception at the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site during our last week in Atlanta.

The evening started with an hour of hors d’oeuvres, mingling, and live music provided by the Eddie Jaxon Jazz Ensemble.

All four of us (pictured above from l to r: Nadja, Jason, John, Elaine) were in attendance to mingle with participants and other guests from the Atlanta community. StoryCorps Founder and Executive Director Dave Isay came all the way from New York to speak about StoryCorps Griot and play excerpts of some Atlanta stories, which also aired on WABE.

As you can see, it was a full house with standing room only. The reception was the perfect ending to a lovely stay. Saturday marks the last day of interviews in Atlanta, then we’re off to Newark, New Jersey for the second stop on the Griot tour.
