John Lewis's Ride to Freedom

Inspired by the 1961 Freedom Riders Route from Washington, D.C. to New Orleans, LA, The City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs will transform a section of the Freedom PATH trail into the "John Lewis’s Ride to Freedom" playscape. The agency will engage local artists, elementary schools and neighborhood associations to develop the final design which will include public art, a map of states the Freedom Riders traveled and asphalt games and activities for kids to follow the Freedom Riders path, which will serve 300 kids annually.
