Brian Kemp while facing opposition from some city council members. In spite of this, supporters of Mayor Bottoms believe that she just might be able to bring equity to Atlanta.
Bottoms on Wednesday tweeted that she got a text to her personal cellphone addressing her by a racial slur and telling her “Just shut up and RE-OPEN ATLANTA.”
Mega church leader Pastor Jamal Bryant of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church pens open letter discussing the Black churches role during the COVID-19 pandemic.
