Friday on “Closer Look with Rose Scott”:

  • 0:00: We continue our series of conversations with area colleges and universities with Dr. Mark Becker, president of Georgia State University.
  • 27:00: The highly anticipated release of “Black Panther” is sparking many conversations. We’ll hear from a round table on the cultural impact of the movie, shot right here in the Atlanta area. Joining us in studio are Nsenga Burton, professor and chair of mass media arts at Clark Atlanta University, and Joseph Wheeler, founder and president of Atlanta’s Onyxcon.
  • 43:05: Since most alcoholic beverages are made with some kind of grain – like barley, wheat, or rye – they contain gluten. But now, Dalton Distillery has a product for those who have gluten sensitivities. TazaRay is the first commercially distilled spirit made from sunflower seeds – making it naturally gluten free. A conversation with Vann Brown, CFO of Dalton Distillery and one of the founding partners behind TazaRay Sunflower Spirits.
