The article provides examples of technology that is used by students along with historical context to help bring about about an innovative approach of remapping Atlanta’s past. The main goal of the “Digital Atlanta” article is about Georgia State and Emory Universities combined efforts throughout digital projects to address Atlanta’s archaeological built environments and past achievements through digital databases such as; geo-databases, spatial history tools and digital map collections. The target audience of this article are those to work and inhabit the city of Atlanta. This is known from the consistent use of the pronoun, “we”. This implies that the authors are communicating as a whole/community. City planners, historiographers, archaeologists, urban geographers, people in CIS professions, and students who study government, geology/geography, history, information systems, or modeling may find this work useful because this article collaborates varied and specific skills from numerous professions on the history of Atlanta along with the process of a digital remapping of the city.

According Georgia State Student Malik Sowell, the displays are on each floor within every pathway. There are usually pictures with text by them that explains the events. In some situations there are videos of significant events that took place. There is even art that describes some events. I feel as though this is not enough to capture everyone’s attention and why the center does not ameliorate racial division because not a diverse amount of people go there.

Is there segregation in Atlanta?

According to the head of geography at the University of Georgia Steven R. Holloway and Associate Professor of Sociology, Thomas L. McNulty,  argues that exact patterns of crime reflect geographic processes at multiple scales simultaneously.  Their thesis was true as Atlanta’s housing projects have a wide variety of spread effects on crime rates in surrounding neighborhoods.  Neighborhoods surrounding the projects tend to have more crime. Other projects have lower estimated crime rates. There is segregation in Atlanta due to crime and the geographic design of the projects.

Georgia State Student Malik Sowell argues that the Center for Civil and Human Rights does not appeal to every race. He visited and noted how from his perception there was mostly white people and not a mixture of races. In order to capture the world to inspire the young and old, the museum needs to get everyone’s attention.  It needs to appeal to everybody in order to grab people’s attention. The museum is not doing its job correctly.

What racial divisions exist in Atlanta?

Not much is known about her but, Kimberly Turner is an author of many articles and she argues that 8.8 percent of people in Atlanta lived on integrated blocks in a study that was done at the University of Wisconsin. She explains that this percentage jumped about 18 percent when all of metro Atlanta was included.  She includes an interactive map that shows the whole country based on the 2010 census showing the racial distribution and you can zoom in into Atlanta to see the amount of racial distribution. Looking at the map there are more blacks and hispanics in the metro atlanta area while the whites are more spreaded out in tiny chunks. Many other parts of the country have similar results with other races and the question is what is the actual cause of this.

place to inspire people to take all of their rights seriously.  It has three floor that take you on a journey to view the tough times citizens have gone through to obtain their rights. The center uses videos, pictures, art, and sound to involve the visitors on this journey. The center is next to the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coke. It is approximately 42,000 square feet.

My colleague Sefay Edwards contributed to my questions for my final project. He gave me suggestions and improvements to many of my questions.

What surrounds the museum?

Who contributes to the museum?

More physical or picture displays?



I feel very unintelligent. In my English 1102 class we have to pick a site and come up with a hypothesis and questions for research. The problem is that I cannot find any scholarly source for the questions I have. It turns out that my professor said that I am supposed to feel this way and that I am doing it right. Every source does not have to be scholarly and that is why I feel dumb as rocks there is so much frustration with this. I honestly thought I needed scholary sources for them all but every question cannot be answered with a scholarly source.
