We’re proud to partner with stellar institutions throughout Atlanta to offer unique, impactful programming that looks not just to the past, but also to the next generation of history-makers. Our dedication to capturing history as it happens is reflected in our many partnerships and internal initiatives, including Atlanta Corona Collective, StoryCorps, Fulton County 4H, Poetry Out Loud, and more.
Through online original content, we strive to tell stories that share a more complete insight into Atlanta’s history—past, present, and future. We believe that by increasing access to stories about our shared history, we can help increase understanding of each other and the way the past continues to influence the present.
Atlanta History Center is using our resources to explore the history of the components that make a healthy democratic system, including methods of civic engagement, widespread and informed voter participation, civil rights, and community leadership.
As Atlanta History Center works to make history available and accessible to all, a key component is women’s history. This initiative is made possible by Emily Bourne Grigsby whose bequest endows support for the research, interpretation, and presentation of the role of women in the South.
