About Metro Atlanta
In addition to being the social, economic, and cultural hub of the southeast, Atlanta is a city with a prolific past that has borne witness to some of the most significant moments in American history. In the 1960s, Atlanta was a major organizing center of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement, with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and students from Atlanta's historically black colleges and universities playing major roles in the movement's leadership.
