Throughout the month of July the Huffington Post channel Black Voices is giving its readers a perspective on the people, places and unique Southern charm of the ATL.
The month-long special section entitled, "Atlanta Spotlight" features one-on-one interviews and profiles of Atlanta notables and nationally known celebrities that have grown roots in Atlanta. Encompassing the various facets of the Black community here in the city, the stories span the gamut from political exposition to hairstyles and and everything between.
“Atlanta has become a world-class city with the power to influence the nation in business, politics and social trends," says project producer Gil Robertson IV. Robertson moved to the city over ten years ago and is proud to call Atlanta home.
So far, the special section, part of Black Voices' Sunday Magazine has included “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Cynthia Bailey on what it’s like living in Atlanta; actress Terri Vaughn on her favorite hotspots in Buckhead; and actress Jasmine Guy on the places she frequented growing up in southwest Atlanta. The series has also profiled a new generation of leaders carrying on their families’ legacies in Atlanta’s African American community, including Andrea Young, daughter of Mayor Andrew Young, and Brooke Jackson Edmond, daughter of Mayor Maynard H. Jackson.
