The 1906 Atlanta Race Massacre & The Truth of History

In September 1906, a mob of 5,000 white people killed 25 African Americans over a four-day killing spree that began in the Five Points neighborhood of downtown Atlanta. Though it is a defining moment in Atlanta’s history, the 1906 Atlanta Race Massacre is largely unknown and unrecognized today. A coalition of Atlanta organizations is working to change that.
