If we were to turn Atlanta's clock back 22 years to June 23, 1991, we'd find thousands of people participating in the 20th annual Gay Pride March.  

We'd also be witness to what became known as the 'Miracle of Peachtree'–where several midtown churches actively supported the marchers as they made their way along the route to Piedmont Park.  

Here, Georgia State University Associate Professor of History Dr. Clifford Kuhn revisits the event with WABE's Steve Goss.
