Learn about the rich culture and heritage of the surrounding area, including the Atlanta University Center, and Sunset Avenue, which was home to many other civil rights leaders and claimed a thriving African American social and economic scene that was the mid-1900s rival of Atlanta’s Sweet Auburn community.
