As its name suggests, the Center for Civil and Human Rights, which opens to the public on Monday, is about two struggles—the American one that was fought primarily in the South in the latter half of the twentieth century, and the worldwide one that involves oppressed peoples in distant (and not-so-distant) lands. While there’s an obvious thematic linkage between the American Civil Rights Movement and the broader human rights one, the line between them must have been a challenge for the Center’s designers to straddle. One has a built-in narrative, with a beginning and middle (if not yet an ending), and the other requires navigating the vast space beneath the human rights umbrella, whether it’s oppressed women in Africa, child laborers in Pakistan, or tortured activists in Burma.

Someday a Democrat will win a statewide office in Georgia. It’s a statistical inevitability as the state continues to diversify.

The Georgia chapter of the National Federation of Independent Business asked Monday Night Brewing to host its endorsement event of gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp. The brewery agreed. When media coverage found its way to Twitter, the reaction was swift.
What film studios will boycott Georgia over the abortion law? And what will those boycotts accomplish? We break down what has happened in Georgia's film industry so far since Governor Brian Kemp signed HB 481, the "heartbeat bill," into law.
One would think that having former Georgia Attorney General Mike Bowers literally waiting in the wings to tell the DeKalb County Commission how riddled with corruption its county is—“rotten to the core” is how he put it in a letter this week to the county—might engender a sense of fiscal restraint in the board.
With the primary elections coming up, it’s high time to introduce the fresh batch of Georgia gubernatorial hopefuls looking to succeed Governor Nathan Deal.
