Field Trip Friday: Atlanta in Times of Crisis

Event Details

LIVE ZOOM VIDEO PROGRAM

Field Trip Friday and Historic Jewish Atlanta Tours present Atlanta in Times of Crisis.

Join us as we explore with our guide key turning points when citizens of the Gate City (Atlanta) have collaborated to overcome hardship. This is especially relevant during these times.

Vision and pragmatic pluck, or the “Atlanta Spirit,” differentiate Atlanta from cities across the nation and, especially, the South. When other places refused to abandon relics of the past, when America seemingly came apart at the seams, Atlanta’s civic, business, and community leaders collaborated to moderate and effect change.

Atlantans choose to come together despite differences in socio-economic status, opinion, and experience.
