One reason is because the city is the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He preached here. He graduated from Morehouse College here. He made his home here. He is buried here. Another reason concerns the civil rights stalwarts who also call (or called) Atlanta home. They include Ambassador Andrew Young, activist Ralph David Abernathy, Southern Christian Leadership president Joseph Lowry, U.S. Congressman John Lewis, Coretta Scott King and the Atlanta University Center students who took a stand. Starting with the celebration of Dr. King’s January birthday and continuing through Black History Month in February, Atlanta is the quintessential place to revisit the civil rights movement and explore continuing efforts to further both civil and human rights around the country and the world.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK This may be the best place to begin an Atlanta civil rights tour for it is here that you can visit the birth home of Dr. King, and sit in a pew at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church where Dr. King, his father and grandfather all preached. Inside the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change, part of the National Historical

Park, you can see, among many historic items, the key to room 307 at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis where he was assassinated on April 4, 1968, as well as visit the tombs of both Dr. King and Coretta Scott King. www.nps.gov/malu

NATIONAL CENTER FOR CIVIL AND HUMAN RIGHTS If you lived through the civil rights movement, your memories will be jostled when you enter this museum and (1) hear on a vintage TV news reports from those tumultuous days; (2) sit at a mock lunch counter, don headphones, place your hands on the countertop and endure the types of insults civil rights protesters were forced to hear (and remain nonviolent) as they fought for equal rights; and (3) “meet” the courageous Freedom Riders who traveled on buses throughout the South to protest segregation at bus terminals. If you are too young to have experienced the civil rights movement, you will come away with a new respect for those who fought the good fight. A new feature at the Center is the Civil Rights Walk of Fame, where you can step into the footsteps of movement leaders including Rosa Parks, Andrew Young, Jimmy Carter, John Lewis and more. www.civilandhumanrights.org

JIMMY CARTER PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY AND MUSEUM AND THE CARTER CENTER Atlanta is fortunate to be the home of one of only 14 presidential libraries in the nation. The city, and indeed the nation, also is fortunate that President and Mrs. Carter have been activists for human rights across the globe since they left the White House. At the Library and Museum, guests can learn about the life of our 39th president, step inside a replica of the Oval Office and learn about President Carter’s role in working to establish peace in the Middle East by brokering the Camp David Accords. At the adjacent Carter Center, multiple programs work to prevent and resolve conflicts, enhance freedom and democracy and improve health. www.jimmycarterlibrary.gov

HERNDON HOME A former slave, Alonzo Herndon became the first African American millionaire in the nation, amassing his fortune through ownership of grand barbershops that served Atlanta’s elite and his founding of the still-open-for-business Atlanta Life Insurance Company, known for paying bail for students arrested during the sitins of the civil rights movement. The Herndon Home is now a museum open for tours. www.herndonhome.org

WREN’S NEST Prolific writer Joel Chandler Harris, author of the Uncle Remus stories and former editorial writer and columnist at The Atlanta Constitution, lived with his wife at their home, the Wren’s Nest, in Atlanta. His widow, in 1913, gave their home to the Uncle Remus Memorial Association. Today, it is open for tours and is the site of events including Storytelling on Saturdays, holiday festivities and lawn parties. www.wrensnest.org

WHY WAS ATLANTA SUCH A CENTER FOR CIVIL RIGHTS IN THE 60s?

We had some very forwardthinking people. The Southern Christian Leadership Conference headed by Dr. King was organized in Atlanta, and its members were ministers who were aware of the inequities in our society. They were level-headed thinkers who looked at the problems to come up with solutions for African Americans in our community. Students also played a big part. Students, primarily at the Atlanta University Center, were energetic and wise thinkers and were eager to get involved. They realized that we had problems and could solve them. This active, young student movement combined with the older ministers came together to solve problems. — Xernona Clayton

CIVIL RIGHTS TOURS Tom Houck became an activist for civil rights while in high school. His work eventually led him to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for whom Houck became an aide and a personal driver. Today, Houck’s Civil Rights Tours Atlanta takes visitors to places in Atlanta where history was made. The bonus is that guests get firsthand stories from Houck, along with eyewitness accounts from such stalwarts as Ambassador Andrew Young, U.S. Congressman John Lewis, and activist, politician and former NAACP Chairman Julian Bond. www.civilrightstour.com

AUBURN AVENUE The Sweet Auburn neighborhood, east of Downtown Atlanta, is steeped in history. Famously the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Sweet Auburn is the best place on Earth to connect with his enduring legacy. In the 1940s and 50s, Sweet Auburn flourished economically with scores of African Americanowned businesses, newspapers, churches and nightclubs. The success even prompted FORTUNE magazine in 1956 to call Sweet Auburn “the richest Negro street in the world,” a term originally coined by John Wesley Dobbs. In addition to the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historical Park, you’ll find the APEX Museum, Auburn Avenue Research Library, Historic Wheat Street Baptist Church, Big Bethel AME Church and Sweet Auburn Curb Market on Edgewood Avenue

Founder, president and CEO of the Trumpet Awards Foundation, Inc. and creator and executive producer of the foundation’s Trumpet Awards, leader in civic projects and civil rights

One reason is that it was an education center with the Atlanta University Center. There were more colleges and students in Atlanta than in any community in the country. Second, the presence and influence of Dr. Martin Luther King made it significant to have Atlanta in the forefront of the civil rights movement. This presence included the existence of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, a national organization that was a principal figure of the civil rights movement in the ‘50s and ‘60s.

— Joseph Lowery Civil rights leader, president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and minister

Courage, church ministers and the higher education of blacks and whites all helped make Atlanta a center for civil rights, as did a developing democracy for all (gay and straight, rich and poor, black and white) and Cooperative Capitalism, with a focus on affirmative action. — Andrew Young

Former ambassador to the United Nations, former mayor of Atlanta, congressman, civil and human rights activist and pastor

Atlanta was one of the most progressive cities during the 1960s. It had an enlightened business community and was a center of intellectual, progressive thought. Atlanta was home to Morehouse College, Spelman College, Morris Brown College, the Interdenominational Theological Center, Georgia Tech, Georgia State University and Emory University. Within these historically black colleges and universities, the issues of race and social transformation were debated and discussed. For these reasons, agencies like the NAACP Regional Office, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were all located in Atlanta, where this supportive advanced community existed. — John Lewis

U.S. Representative for Georgia’s fifth congressional district and civil rights leader

Cool Hangouts and Stylish Spots Looking for cool places to hang out in Atlanta? We’ve picked 10 hot spots in Atlanta that you’ll want to check out.

among the friendliest in town. You’ll definitely want to join the Ticonderoga Club.

DARK HORSE TAVERN

Hotel Clermont has been the turnaround story of the year–if not decade–as the seedy Clermont Hotel transformed into a superstar. The Lobby Bar has been named one of the best looking bars in the country and it prides itself on its bourbon-centric offerings. Hotel Clermont’s signature restaurant, Tiny Lou’s, serves up hip, exquisite French cuisine. In warmer weather, the roof offers stunning Downtown views and cocktails.

Dark Horse Tavern has been at the center of the scene for more than 25 years and if there is any question that this is still one of the city’s biggest hot spots, consider this: It is the number one drop-off spot for Lyft. The main floor features a large bar and has a basic bar/ tavern feel. Go downstairs to the 10 High Club, which features Metalsome Live Band Karaoke that can go until 2:30 a.m. on the weekends (and 1:30 a.m. during the week). On the third level is the Warren City Club, which features a rooftop terrace, bar and club-like atmosphere.

WHOLE FOODS MIDTOWN

TONGUE & GROOVE

A grocery store is rarely-if ever-thought of as a hot spot, but if that’s what you think, you haven’t been to Whole Foods Midtown. This three-story store boasts the 14th Street Bar, a casual place serving draft beer and a curated selection of wines by the glass. The Canopy Court is a bar and grill where drinks are paired with grilled entrees; and the Express Kitchen is perfect for those who want their food quick. There also is a Dtox Juice bar and Farm Burger restaurant. The rooftop bar is among the best in the city.

Tongue & Groove is grooving at Lindbergh City Center in Buckhead. It consists of two rooms with different personalities, with The Joint (the smaller room) featuring reclaimed wood and up-cycled materials with alternative musical formats. For those who want music, the night spot boasts an electro-voice 16 element line-array sound system powered by tour grade amplification. Partner that with the light show and laser strobes and every evening will be memorable.

HOTEL CLERMONT

RED PHONE BOOTH TICONDEROGA CLUB Located in the ever-fun Krog Street Market, the Ticonderoga Club is simply a perfect spot to meet for drinks, and you’ll end up staying for dinner. The food choices are sophisticated, the drinks perfectly made and the wait staff is

Koo Koo Room

Red Phone Booth, located in the iconic Dailey’s building downtown, features an exclusive cigar program and turn-of-thecentury craft cocktail selection. Red Phone Booth is open to the public (21 and over) but, in keeping with the speakeasy theme, one

needs a code to get in. They don’t give out the code; you have to be a member or know someone who knows the code.

KOO KOO ROOM Koo Koo Room is a Midtown nightclub that has something for everyone depending on the night. Tuesdays, for instance, feature world beats, reggae, R&B, house and hip-hop, while Thursday is the club’s version of Ladies Night with martinis, wine and champagne specials and a resident DJ.

THE BUREAU The Bureau is a trendy speakeasy that can be accessed through KR SteakBar and a side entrance. If there is a red light bulb on over the door, the place is open. Once you find your way, The Bureau features a beautiful marble-top bar, brick walls, wraparound booths and vintage pictures from the Prohibition area. Located in Peachtree Hills, it is open only on Friday and Saturday.

THE CONSULATE The Consulate in Midtown (right across from the Midtown MARTA station) was named one of the top 10 “sexiest new restaurants and bars” in Atlanta by Zagat. Half the fun is its global menu where several items from one country are featured along with the resident menu from around the world. Among the countries whose traditional dishes are on the menu are Ethiopia, Spain, Korea, Cuba and China.

Bread and Butterfly

Bread and Butterfly, an Inman Park favorite for its outdoor patio. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, with dishes like soft scrambled eggs on brioche, quiche and ratatouille with polenta. Where to Snap: Your friends might think you’re in a French brasserie based on the photos of the green-tiled walls, blue and white cafe chairs and neon “Merci” sign. But don’t forget about the food, which is the most photogenic.

LITTLE TROUBLE Inspired by the science-fiction film “Blade Runner,” Little Trouble is located underneath the shops at Westside Provisions District, down a neon-lit alley. This bar and restaurant is great for shared plates with friends, especially the pork dumplings, buns and skewers. Where to Snap: The alley with the blue and red geometric design is by far the most-snapped spot in the restaurant, and it is especially special with your silhouette in front of it.

BEST RUNNING TRAILS AROUND ATLANTA

COCHRAN SHOALS TRAIL Located just north of the city at the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, Cochran Shoals is one of the city’s most popular paths, with nearly four miles of flat, wide gravel trail along the riverbanks and through the forest. The trail also connects into steeper hiking trails like Sope Creek, also part of the recreation area.

With nearly 48 percent of the city covered in trees, Atlanta rightly earns it moniker of “City in a Forest.” This also means that, regardless of what neighborhood you’re in, you’re never far from a park or trail. Here are some of the city’s best.

SILVER COMET TRAIL

Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail

ATLANTA BELTLINE EASTSIDE TRAIL

CREATIVITY 101 Turn over a new leaf in the new year by learning to cook, sew or make something spectacular. LIGHT UP YOUR LIFE Learn how to make candles during workshops at Ponce City Market’s Candlefish. Choose a workshop where you bring your own vessel, perhaps your favorite teacup or vase or sign up for a class where you can blend fragrances. If you are between the ages of 8 and 14, pick a workshop just for you, but be sure to bring an adult who is at least 18. www.candlefish.com

ATLANTA BELTLINE WESTSIDE TRAIL

EAST PALISADES TRAIL

Less crowded than its neighbor to the east, the Westside Trail is three miles long, includes 40 acres of green space, and is adjacent to the Lee + White development, where you can stop into Wild Heaven Brewing, Boxcar or ASW Distillery for a post-run libation.

WHAT’S COOKING? The Cooking School at Irwin Street offers instruction in focaccia bread making, Indian cooking and side dishes, to name a few. The instructors promise that while each class is different, one thing remains the same: all students participate in making a meal and then everyone sits down to enjoy it. www.irwinstreetcooks.com Cook’s Warehouse’s cooking classes vary depending on which chef is teaching. Some might teach recipes from one of their cookbooks; others might focus on dishes for particular holidays. At yet another class, students can learn knife skills. www.cookswarehouse.com

SEW WHAT? You, too, can learn to sew at Ponce City Market’s Topstitch Studio & Lounge. Classes include sweater mending, an introduction to sewing and introduction to patterns. Learn to make a shirt or an outfit, and embroidery classes offer instructions on making ornaments, buttons, patches and pins. Advanced students can needle into seams, hems and dress making. Cross-stitch fans can learn to make key chains or ornaments. www.topstichatl.com

This 60-plus mile, paved rail trail starts in Cobb County and winds all the way to the Alabama state line, making it ideal for long runs and rides.
