At one time, the state of Georgia was known as one of the easiest states for a Black man in which to get lynched. Between 1915 to 1970 a wave of Black Americans left the deep South to find new opportunities in cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit and Chicago. A new story in the New York Times is reporting that Black folks from up North are moving back down to Atlanta, Georgia:

“It seems like everything is happening here now,” said Dave Hollister, an R&B singer who spends a lot of time in Atlanta. “It feels like New York used to feel with a little more nicety.”

Atlanta has evolved over the past few decades into an amazing source of art and opportunity for Black entrepreneurs in various fields of industry. At the same time, so much home grown talent has exploded from the ATL, its easy to see the attraction.

“Atlanta area is now home to such a critical mass of successful actors, rappers and entertainment executives that few would argue its position as the center of black culture. Tyler Perry and his movie and television empire are based here. Sean Combs has a house in a suburb north of the city. The musicians Cee Lo Green, Ludacris and members of OutKast call it home. So does the music producer and rapper Jermaine Dupri.”
