We partnered with community members in the Grove Park and Bankhead neighborhoods to choose, report, and present journalism that residents said was important to them. More than 75 current and former residents and stakeholders weighed in on what information and stories they wanted to focus on.
These stories were developed with community feedback and written by community members, our Fellows. Over the last few months, the Fellows completed a paid training course and put their new skills to practice through writing and reporting. Canopy Atlanta is excited to present these community-powered stories to you.
The Bankhead + Grove Park Issue will roll out over the next few weeks.
“Bankhead and Grove Park are oft-forgotten Atlanta gems that help us better understand the city’s complicated past, present and future. The communities, like everywhere else inside the perimeter, have their challenges, success and unmatched pride. Connecting local reporters with our Canopy Fellows, we wanted to bring all of that into focus.”
