Atlanta, GA 30312 Driving Directions
Atlanta, the epitome of the New South, is a city whose economic growth has transformed it from a provincial capital to a global city, one that could bid for and win the 1996 Summer Olympics. Yet the reality is that exceptional economic development of the region over the last twenty years has exacerbated inequality within surrounding neighborhoods. This workshop and tour will explore how the spectacle of development does not necessarily translate into equitable growth for urban communities.
