It may be a well-known African market, but the market that started in the late 1970s and thrived into the early 2000s is also known for being a hub for the African diaspora.
Here, African and international artists, musicians, writers, actors and fashion designers flock together to shop and eat together in one of the city’s many ethnic neighborhoods.
In a city where many African-Americans still identify as black, the African market has been a beacon of hope and inspiration for African Americans in Atlanta and the metro Atlanta area.
The African market’s thriving has spawned its own set of imitators, and the city has had its own version of the African American Museum.
What you don’t know about this thriving African market can be hard to find, too.
Here are 10 facts you probably didn’t know: It is a unique marketplace in the city that has been called one of Atlanta’s “cultural hotspots.”
It is home to some of the region’s largest and most well-respected African American businesses, including the Museum of African Art, the Museum Of Contemporary Art, and The African American Art Museum.
It is also a major tourist attraction, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
But it’s not just the diverse group of artists and designers at the African and Asian markets that has helped create an authentic African experience.
They have also helped to make the city a destination for African-American culture and history.
