Farrow Allen

Farrow Allen is the grandson of Luther Judson Price, South Atlanta’s first African American postmaster who was threatened by a mob during the 1906 Atlanta Race Massacre. Now retired and living in Asheville, N.C., Allen was born several years after his grandfather died in 1936 and heard stories about him from his mother. Born into slavery in middle Georgia, Price became one of the first graduates of Clark University after the Civil War. He ran a general store and post office in a South Atlanta neighborhood known as Brownsville and was considered a respected community leader. Read Farrow Allen’s full bio.
