Episode 05. Atlanta

“Food. Activism.”

Today, Martin Luther King Jr.’s neighborhood bubbles with activity. Tourists hop on the new streetcar to travel from Atlanta’s downtown to see his home and church, and the restaurant and bar scene is blossoming, attracting all kinds of people to the area. But the liveliness is new for the Old Fourth Ward, which suffered in the years following MLK Jr.’s assassination. I dropped by two restaurants to find out how the neighborhood’s revitalization is creating new opportunities for the diverse residents who call the area home. And in the process, I also found a story of how one chef is bringing a new kind of activism to the block, by cooking and educating with locally sourced, healthy food.
