The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was born here, preached here, and lived in Vine City on Sunset Avenue (and was arrested outside the former downtown Rich's store). A young John Lewis ate his first meal in Atlanta at Paschal's, which he said "helped to fortify" him and other civil rights foot soldiers "to go out and do battle." We have statues and plaques honoring civil rights figures, organizations, and moments in history. But of all the monuments and landmarks around the city recognizing Atlanta's prominent role in the Civil Rights Movement, the "I Have a Dream" World Peace Rose Garden at the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site is one of our favorites. Originally planted in 1992, the starburst-shaped garden is tucked off of Auburn Avenue away from Edgewood's rowdy nightlife scene, and offers a fragrant oasis for a moment of quiet.
Putting a little thought behind the Thank You
'I think of all the people that I've helped, and now someone's helping me.'
Lawd, please stop advertising the hostel. It's a sacred space.
one addendum: take the golden isles highway to brunswick rather than I-16. it's like going…
How is the stupid rap "music" version of The Great Gatsy supposed to be classy?
Absolutely fabulous. My summer is planned.
Dahlonega is a great little town!
