Atlanta Race Riot Anniversary

If you are an Atlanta native or a history buff, you may know about the Atlanta Race Riots of on September 22, 1906.

Below is the link about the ATL Race Riots. I have never heard of the ATL Race Riots. Oh well. That is why I listen to WAOK 1380 AM and other talk radio stations. πŸ‘πŸ½

This video starts out with the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta and then gives history of rarely mentioned ATL Race Riots.

This is similar in nature to what happened in Black Wallstreet in Tulsa, with Emmet Till, etc. History continues to repeat itself. So, let us all hope and pray we all know enough to recognize signs early enough, and care enough to prevent future race riots in Atlanta and across the U.S.
