On Second Thought For Thursday, August 17, 2017

Aug 17, 2017

First, Atlanta has a healthy appetite for improv. This week Dad’s Garage Theater welcomes Scott Adsit. You may know him best as Pete Hornberger on the show “30 Rock.” Scott joined us earlier this week to discuss the art of comedy.

Then, Atlanta-based producer Will Packer’s new movie “Girls Trip” is doing quite well. It cost about $19 million to make, and it’s grossed more than $90 million since opening in theaters last month. We talked with Will Packer last week about making hit movies with diverse casts, and his television project “Black America.”

Next, Latino youth are being bullied more since the election of Donald Trump, according to the Atlanta-based Clinic for Education, Treatment, and Prevention of Addictions. We talked earlier this year with Andy Miller, Editor of Georgia Health News.Belisa Urbina, Executive Director of Ser Familia, also joined us. Her organization provides counseling and other services to Hispanic families in the metro Atlanta area.

Finally, Georgia’s Latino population has seen significant growth, but our schools still seem to be unable to find enough Latino teachers. We recently talked with Julio Cabanas, an Assistant Principal at Fair Street Elementary. He was Gainesville’s first Latino administrator.
