Dialog in the Dark

Dialog in the Dark is an experience that takes people through common experiences the blind encounter in their every day lives in ways that sighted individuals can take for granted.

It is truly a life-changing journey in complete darkness as people learn to see without sight, relying on the other four senses to navigate their way through parks, streets and other urban environments.

I had a chance to experience this myself and interviewed Atlanta resident and tour guide, Nicole Campbell. Campbell discussed the exhibition, common questions and what it means to be blind in Atlanta.

We also search the Georgia Music Directory to listen to "Autumn Leaves" by the After Hours Quartet.

W Hotel provides virtual tour of new Buckhead locale

Last week the W Atlanta Hotels gave the media a sneak peek of their latest locale. The new location is just a stone's throw away from Lenox Square Mall on Peachtree Street and scheduled to open mid November.

Like all of the hotels in the chain, the W Atlanta - Buckhead will maintain the stark white signature facade while showcasing its own unique decor. According the hotel's General Manager, Marylouise Fitzgibbon, the theme is "country club chic," an eclectic mix of southern traditional and modern styles. This is a far departure from it's sister, W Midtown which features a "retro glam" theme.

Not sure what country club chic looks like, take the virtual tour via YouTube:

Gay dilemma in the church - Don't ask, don't tell

Posted By on Thu, Jul 3, 2008 at 8:39 PM

Well its Fourth of July and Pride weekend in Atlanta and what better way to celebrate it than to discuss civil liberties. Sure, you're probably thinking the old addage of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," but today the focus in on something a bit more specific - the right to worship and the apparent lack thereof.

In this episode I speak with Pastor Troy Sanders and Rev. Dr. Kathy Martin of Preach2me.com on the messages in todays churches including the "don't ask, don't tell" homosexual policy in the Black church. Sanders and Brown also chime in on the growth of prosperity ministries. This week we feature a track from Levphonic's upcoming release Urban Jungle which I've decided to name, Smooth Mofo.

    • Local band Manchester Orchestra, who provided the soundtrack, probably would have appreciated a shout-out.
