This week on “Love and Respect with Killer Mike,” Michael “Killer Mike” Render sat down with two people serving the Atlanta community in different ways — proving that you don’t have to be born in Atlanta to make it your home.
NBA legend Jacques Dominique Wilkins is an Atlanta icon. Despite being born in Paris, and raised in Baltimore and North Carolina, Wilkins’ 1982 arrival in Atlanta was the start of one of the most storied careers in Atlanta Hawk history. Post-NBA, he continues to play in charity games, guide the Hawks on issues with the Atlanta community, and serve his adopted community.
This is the same adopted community as Emory University’s Dr. Kimberly Manning. She s a general internist/hospitalist who serves as associate vice chair of diversity, equity, and inclusion for the Department of Medicine at Emory University School of Medicine. A multi-award-winning professor and medical professional, Dr. Manning is a woman who wears many hats, and one is that of a community educator.
