This Day in History: The ‘Neighborhood Union’ Created to Serve the African American Community

If we were to turn Atlanta's clock back 105 years to July 8, 1908, we'd witness the debut of a new organization dedicated to serving the needs of the African American community.  

The 'Neighborhood Union' was founded by renowned social reformer Lugenia Burns Hope .   Georgia State University Associate Professor of History Dr. Clifford Kuhn revisits the event with WABE' Steve Goss.
