(DRAFTING) Publix at Piedmont: Merging the Downtown, Midtown, and Old Fourth Ward Communities of Atlanta

When I was first hired, my department manager told me, “I’ve worked for Publix for [X] years and this is the mostĀ interesting store I’ve ever worked at. We have to deal with things that most stores will never encounter.” Unlike Joseph, I would have nothing to compare my store experiences to.

One of the main reasons why I chose to attend school in Atlanta was because of the vast diversity of the city. While I do see the diversity of population at Georgia State and other public places in Atlanta, self-segregation is blatant in most observations. Segregation was legal in the city a little over 50 years ago, and even though the spearheadĀ of the Civil Rights Movement took place in Atlanta, the strife of racial bias continues to linger.
