New BeltLine art showcases civil rights history

- Art on the Atlanta BeltLine kicked off one of its largest outdoor exhibitions on Sunday.

This year, the exhibit has an historic theme: Atlanta and the civil rights movement.

The exhibit allows you to get familiar with the names and faces in our community who helped secure civil and human rights for all citizens.

"I think it's really nice," resident Kaamilah Young said. "It's good for us to be reminded of our history and everything like that."

The artwork will be presented throughout four miles of the Eastside and Westside trails, making it the longest outdoor exhibition on civil and human rights in the United States.
