Through our Neighborhood Initiative, Atlanta History Center is working with local community partners to bring this history to life in new, innovative ways.
Residents are the experts on their own communities, and with help from the History Center’s professional staff, community members can bring their memories, interpretations, and perspectives to broad audiences. Atlanta History Center believes residents’ reflections on the past have the power to unite them in a shared sense of civic responsibility and pride.
The communities with whom we have collaborated include Inman Park, Oakland City & Bush Mountain, Howell Station, and Buford Highway, which represented a Latinx community hub.
Museum theatre and performance-based interpretation introduce our visitors to the important—and previously unacknowledged—historical events, narratives, and individuals.Learn more
