What's Happening
District 33!


Georgia’s redrawn 6th Congressional District includes southern and central Fulton County, South Cobb County, eastern Douglas County, and northern Fayette County. Its Black voting-age population is 51.75%.

In addition, Republicans created a second Black-majority district by increasing the Black voting-age population of the already heavily Black 5th District centered in the city of Atlanta to 51.06%.

“It fully complies with Judge Jones’ order,” said Leverette, R-Elberton. “It fulfills our obligation as a General Assembly.”

But House Democrats complained that Republicans are eliminating a “coalition” congressional district by radically altering the boundaries of District 7 centered in Gwinnett County. Under the current map, it is a “minority-opportunity” district where no single minority group is in the majority, but the number of Black, Hispanic, and Asian-American voters combined makes up a majority with the political clout to elect a candidate of their choice.

Create a great offer by adding words like "free" "personalized" "complimentary" or "customized." A sense of urgency often helps readers take an action, so think about inserting phrases like "for a limited time only" or "only 7 remaining"!

Featuring Councilman Anthony Coleman: Narrator

Located on the site of the first public school for Black students in Marietta, the Lemon Street School was built in 1951 as an equalization school. It closed in 1971 and over the next 40 years, the school served as a community center, a small public library, and most recently as a storage facility.

At the urging of the Lemon Street Heritage Group, which included former educators, alumni, and community leaders, the school system recognized the site’s irreplaceable cultural and historic value and began rehabilitation in 2020.

The goal of the project was to return the property to its original use as an active educational facility. The historic character of the school was retained, including its distinctive brick, roofline, and porch ironwork.

The building reopened in February 2021 as the Woods-Wilkins Campus—the new home of Marietta High School’s three nontraditional academic programs, serving almost 200 students and staff, day and night, six days a week.

The construction is on track to be completed before the end of the first quarter of 2024. The restaurant will be a great addition to the pedestrian-friendly community and is just yards from the Silver Comet Trail
