Atlanta dedicates a new Atlanta Park to “The Godmother of Voter Registration” on Wednesday.

Ella Mae Wade Brayboy spent her entire life advocating for others. Brayboy worked as a congressional staffer for Congressman Andrew Young and served as the community outreach director for 15 years at the King Center.

Councilman Michael Julian Bond organized a commission to memorialize her contributions and it cumulated into the park dedication at Burbank and Lena Streets.

Brayboy is also the grandmother of FOX 5 Reporter Aungelique Proctor.
