Description

This is the story of the oldest continuously operating professional sports franchise in America. It’s a story not only of great teams (the 1914 ‘Miracle’ Braves, the 1995 World Champs), great ballplayers (Aaron, Spahn, Niekro and Murphy), memorable managers and pleasant stadiums, but also a story of heartbreaking losses and long pennant droughts. It’s the story of the Braves and their ancestors – the Red Stockings, Beaneaters, Doves, Rustlers, and Bees – and their wanderings from Boston to Milwaukee and Atlanta. In a way, it’s also the story of professional baseball in America.

In fact, the franchise that started as the Boston Red Stockings in the 1870s and is now known as the Atlanta Braves is the only one of today’s 30 Major League franchises to have fielded a team every season professional baseball has been in existence.

Follow this overview and this section’s timeline for more of the rich, sometimes warped, always a colorful and truly unique story of the Braves.

Description

The Center for Civil and Human Rights is a cultural center in downtown Atlanta that seeks to connect the American Civil Rights Movement to today’s Global Human Rights Movements. Their purpose is to create a safe space for visitors to explore the fundamental rights of all human beings. The Center’s goal is to inspire and empower visitors to join the ongoing dialogue about human rights in their own communities.

The Center has both permanent and temporary exhibitions on different topics relating to civil and human rights. Exhibitions explore the history of the civil rights movement in the US during the 1950s and 1960s. Others focus on Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life and work in the fight for equal rights. Some exhibitions focus more on present-day issues of human rights and how certain groups are depicted in the media. These exhibits aim to help visitors gain a deeper understanding of human rights and how they affect the lives of every person.

A BRIEF HISTORY
The Center was first imagined by civil rights legends Evelyn Lowery and former United Nations Ambassador Andrew Young and was launched by former Mayor Shirley Franklin. The effort gained broad-based corporate and community support to become one of the few places in the world educating visitors on the bridge between the American Civil Rights Movement and the contemporary struggle for Human Rights around the world.

Established in 2007, The Center’s groundbreaking 42,000-square-foot facility is located on Pemberton Place®, adjacent to the World of Coca-Cola and the Georgia Aquarium, on land donated by the Coca-Cola Company.
