Protesting for change isn’t new to Atlanta

It seems impossible to fit the history of protests and racial inequality in Atlanta into 100 words. Our past is not pretty and the call to fight against systemic racism isn’t something new.

We’ve seen the 1881 Washerwomen’s Strike, the 1906 Atlanta Race Riot, countless demonstrations against lynching, the fight for black leaders to remain in power and so much more throughout the years.

While Atlanta is known as the cradle of the civil rights movement and the home to civil rights leaders including Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lewis and Andrew Young, it’s clear there’s still work to do.
