Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 21 January 2013 “Remember! Celebrate! Act!”
King was born on January 15, 1929 at 501 Auburn Ave., on the second floor of the Queen Anne-style house owned by his grandfather A.D. Williams. Today, "Sweet Auburn”, the prosperous black neighborhood that was home to King and his parents, grandparents, brother and sister, lies largely within a national historic site and a preservation district, a reminder of Atlanta's role in pushing a tide of change in America.
