The Confess Project is expanding its efforts to Atlanta! Atlanta is known as the “cradle of the Civil Rights Movement” because Black leaders fought tirelessly for voting rights, economic equality, educational opportunities, and equal access to public spaces between 1940 and 1970. One of the most notable leaders during this era was Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Every year, hundreds of Black men graduate from Dr. King’s alma mater, Morehouse, located near Atlanta’s downtown. Atlanta is synonymous with Black excellence.
Atlanta’s status as the “Black Mecca,” however, is precarious at best. For instance, Black Atlanta residents experience an 11.5% jobless rate in 2017 compared to 2.5% for white residents. Additionally, Black Atlanta residents are six times more likely than their white counterparts to experience homelessness in the past three years. Poverty and joblessness often result in poor mental health.
