ATLANTA: "The City Too Busy To Hate!"
What do Dr Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Ronald Reagan, Jack Kemp have in common with the City of Atlanta?
Tune in to our Broadcast today to learn how these Political Leaders are linked to Atlanta's Civil Rights History.
Atlanta, Ga is a Southeastern Hub for the Federal Gov't.
Main District Offices for the Federal Gov't are located in Atlanta. (Ex: IRS, Civil Rights Division, EEOC, Veteran Affairs, HUD, FBI, CIA)
Due to Atlanta being the native home of the late Civil Rights Leader Dr Martin Luther King Jr & providing many Business Opportunities for Minorities, Atlanta was once known as the “BLACK Mecca”.
However that Business Climate for BLACK Entreprenuers changed soon after the Recession.
Harlem, NY is now the new "BLACK Mecca".
But none of Atlanta’s Federal Gov't Offices Closed!
Whenever BLACK Citizens who reside in the Southeastern Region of the U.S. file Discrimination Charges against a Private Sector or Government entity, those Complaints are directed to the Atlanta Federal District Offices because Atlanta has Jurisdiction.
It's the Atlanta EEOC Offices which instructs Local Southeastern EEOC Offices to either Proceed, Delay or Refuse to Investigate Discrimination Charges filed by BLACK Citizens.
