When I went out to Brownsville, knowing of its bloody part in the riot, I expected to find a typical negro slum. I looked for squalor, ignorance, vice. And I was surprised to find a large settlement of negroes practically every one of whom owned his own home, some of the houses being as attractive without and as well furnished within as the ordinary homes of middleclass white people. Near at hand, surrounded by beautiful grounds, were two negro colleges — Clark University and Gammon Theological Seminary. The post office was kept by a negro. There were several stores owned by negroes. The schoolhouse, though supplied with teachers by the county, was built wholly with money personally contributed by the negroes of the neighborhood, in order that there might be adequate educational facilities for their children. They had three churches and not a saloon. The residents were all of the industrious, property-owning sort, bearing the best reputation among white people who knew them.

Leaders of the Airport West Community Improvement District (CID) in Fulton County and the Airport South CID in Clayton County have also united to form the Aerotropolis Atlanta CIDs (AACIDs). The AACIDs are seeking additional member properties to further expand their efforts to create an economically strong, safe, attractive and vibrant community surrounding the world’s most-traveled passenger airport.
