Thanks to an $83,500 grant from the Delta Air Lines Foundation, the National Parks Service will open the doors of the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Park for 16 days – from Jan. 19 through Feb. 3.
The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area has just been expanded.
The Trust for Public Land and the National Park Service announced the acquisition of 18.5 acres of key riverfront property in Forsyth County. It will add nearly 1,000 feet of frontage along the Chattahoochee River in Cumming.
An axis of peace. That’s probably the best way to define the relationship between two of Atlanta’s greatest leaders and their families – the late Martin Luther King Jr. and former President Jimmy Carter.
It is a special multi-layered relationship that keeps building upon a shared foundation of non-violence, human and civil rights. And both MLK Jr. and Carter were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts.
