My friend Christine McCauley, executive director of Buckhead Heritage, just told me about a very interesting historic preservation case. It seems that a developer wants to move a black graveyard in Buckhead, which is now an very upscale area of Atlanta. The graveyard is there because in the early part of the last century there was a thriving black neighborhood in this area, before the residents were displaced for a park. Now a developer wants to move the graves and a descendant of family members buried there is suing to stop it. Read more here and/or follow events on the BH website. My headline from this post is my favorite quote from the article, from a former mayor of Atlanta.
