About the Book

America’s Black Capital (Basic Books, 2023) tells the remarkable story of how African Americans transformed Atlanta, the former heart of the Confederacy, into today’s so-called Black mecca.

Atlanta is home to some of America’s most prominent Black politicians, artists, businesses, and HBCUs. Yet, in 1861, Atlanta was a final contender to be the capital of the Confederacy. Sixty years later, long after the Civil War, it was the Ku Klux Klan’s sacred “Imperial City.”
