I'm guessing more white people, less black people because of gentrification. Kirkwood, Edgewood, Westside/West View how have those neighborhoods changed?

The July 1, 2017 U.S. Census estimate for the City of Atlanta proper gives one a good idea where the official decadial census numbers might be in 2020.

Just a counter-thought and I'm not saying I advocate it, but what's wrong with cities becoming the exclusive enclaves of the wealthy? The worker bees can commute in via public transit.

Back to the original topic....

I think the white percentage will be up, black down, but not dramatically so. I think people focus on the well known neighborhoods (which are changing fast) but many areas of Atlanta are growing with new black residents as well. I imagine 41% white, 52% black by 2020.

Changes in Kirkwood/Edgewood will likely be more dramatic. I believe I saw a report not too long ago that Kirkwood had gone from 85%+ African American to majority white in just 10 years from 2000 to 2010. I assume that will continue to 2020, with Edgewood following suit based on the growth there.

The demographics have shifted quickly in parts of the COA. Mary Lin Elementary was about 60% black in 2000 and is now only 12% black and dropping. Some of the most segregated elementary schools in the state are in the City of Atlanta. The elementary schools in the gentrified parts of Atlanta are populated mostly by liberal whites, so I don't see a Republican leaning Mayor anytime soon. In fact, any urban area with an African American population >40% will probably never go Republican due ~95% of African Americans in the COA voting Democrat, and a higher share of whites in the COA voting Democrat.

2020 projection: 49% black 40% white.
