On July 30, 2020, we lost two civil rights icons -- Congressman John Lewis and Rev. C. T. Vivian. Brother Congressman John Lewis represented Georgia's 5th Congressional District from 1987 until his death.

Today, the almost 800,000 citizens that reside in Georgia's 5th Congressional District are without representation in the US House of Representatives. Governor Kemp set a September 29, 2020 Election Date for citizens to elect a person to serve out his term. SEVEN candidates have stepped up and placed their names on the ballot.

1380 WAOK The Voice of the Community, V-103 The People's Station, The Atlanta NAACP, and NPHC of Greater Atlanta have partnered to host a Conversation With The Candidates on Thursday, September 10th at 6:30 PM. During the forum, you will meet the candidates and hear how they would like to serve and represent GA5 citizens.

The forum will be moderated by two of the ATL's favorites -- Dr. Maria Boynton, News & Public Affairs Director for Entercom Atlanta, and Dr. Rashad Richey, Host of the Rashad Richey Morning Show on 1380 WAOK.  It will be broadcast via #FacebookLive on WAOK-AM, WVEE-FM and NPHC of Greater Atlanta.

Questions may be submitted via Eventbrite (
