Honoring Resilience & Remembering Brownsville

September 21 @ 11:30 am 1:00 pm

We will begin near South Atlanta Park for a welcome address from FCRC and our partners. The first 60 people to arrive will receive headphones to listen to a recording of the Atlanta Massacre. While listening and reflecting we will walk to Community Grounds to gather for a community conversation on why the Atlanta Massacre was not a “race riot” and the historical marker FCRC hopes to install in the Brownsville/South Atlanta community.

Our purpose is to remember the 25 Black men and women who we know lost their lives and the countless others whose stories we may never hear; to honor the resilience of the Brownsville Community; and to learn from this historic violence and injustice about how to better address what we are facing today.

This event is free and open to the public. Physical distancing and masks will be required.

Photography and Videography: We will have a photographer and videographer present. By attending this event, you give your permission to have your image used by FCRC. If you do not want your image used, please let us know when you arrive at the event.
