Last week, Atlanta real estate mogul Herman J. Russell autographed Building Atlanta: How I Broke through Segregation to Launch a Business Empire at a special ceremony with Mayor Reed and the Department of Human Resources.

Building Atlanta tells how a man born into the Jim Crow segregationist era rose from a shoeshine business, to building a duplex as a teenager, to running one of the most successful U.S. minority-owned businesses, H.J. Russell & Company.

Russell shares his rise from poverty and how he helped to finance the civil rights movement and integrate Atlanta through business. Purchase the book on Amazon.
