Atlanta’s 2011 Civil Rights Celebration Marks Anniversaries, New Discoveries

 

ATLANTA, Jan. 5, 2011
/PRNewswire/ — Unexpected actions make for extraordinary stories. Who
would expect that a young Martin Luther King Jr. would perform at the
segregated movie premiere of “Gone with the Wind” in 1939? Who would
think that revenue from the novel would fund medical scholarships for
graduates of Morehouse College in Atlanta, an all-male, historically black college?

As the home of the Civil Rights Movement, Atlanta
is the perfect destination to explore the history, personalities and
places where one of America’s most important movements was centered.
Visitors will find that Atlanta‘s Civil Rights story extends beyond commonly known icons and venues.

The 25th anniversary of the first observance of the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday on January 17, 2011 and the 75th anniversary
of the publishing of “Gone with the Wind” bring forward the
little-known connection between the leader of the civil rights movement
and the author of one of the most popular novels in history. To continue, Please click “MORE”!
