Today is August 3rd, and if we were to turn Atlanta's clock back 53 years to this date in 1959, we'd find the ribbon being cut at “Lenox Square”, a new and innovative shopping center in Buckhead.  

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