I agree. I've mentioned before that prior to WWII, the city of Decatur school system conducted classes Tuesday - Saturday in order to discourage Jews from moving in to the community.
Just an FYI: Dr. Brickman was a prominent oral surgeon here; his daughter has been a friend of mine since high school. I'm minus my wisdom teeth thanks to him. He is a wonderful man.

Wow, wow, wow. I never heard of Leo Frank, nor was aware of that horrible story. Very informative.

If you want to understand Atlanta, I'd highly recommend the film, The People vs. Leo Frank.

One of the many things we watched after moving to this area. An interesting movie, and a very sad situation.
