The “digital divide” remains top of mind in Atlanta’s African-American community – especially as Internet access becomes increasingly critical in everyday life. As a result, the Urban League of Greater Atlanta and Comcast are teaming up to help connect the local African-American community to the Internet in a series of events on Oct. 14. Comcast is giving the Urban League a $15,000 grant as it kicks off year three of Internet Essentials – a low-cost broadband adoption program designed to bring Internet access into the homes of those who need it most. Since its inception, the program has connected more than 20,000 low-income metro Atlanta families to the Internet as part of more than 220,000 nationwide.

Also we discussed Dr. Ben Carson recent comments. Click the audio links to hear what Dr. Carson had to say…
