Planning Atlanta: A New City in the Making, 1930s - 1990s: Oral Histories

The oral histories in the Planning Atlanta collection consist of audio recording and transcripts from interviews with current and former residents of three Atlanta neighborhoods: Thomasville, Buttermilk Bottoms, and Vine City. These three neighborhoods were, in varying capacities, affected by urban renewal during the 1960s and were often portrayed in dire terms by the media. In these interviews, residents share their experiences, recount stories of daily life, and provide a more balanced perspective on the past and current state of their neighborhoods.
