Paschal’s is located at the intersection of MLK and Paschal Blvd. Chad Carlson took this photo last week standing across the street. The tall building behind it was the adjoining hotel.
Chad writes: “People should be more aware of this, especially since they are proposing a complete revamp of MLK, from the stadium to I-285. What happened here resonates in places as far away as South Africa. Correatta Scott King had said that the significance to the Civil Rights movement of this buiding is akin to Fanueil Hall in Boston to the American Revolution.”
He also shared this recent article from the Washington Post about Paschal’s: Paschal’s, once a civil rights landmark, is in tatters.
