The Atlanta Church Project or Glory Be Revival of Neighborly Love documents three small and overwhelmingly black community churches. I focused on the ongoing and rapidly gentrified Kirkwood, Reynoldstown & Cabbagetown neighborhoods. These areas run roughly from Hosea Williams Drive, starting at Candler Road and ending in Cabbagetown.
I began imagining the project as I rode my bike through these areas. I noticed that there are dozens of small churches. It was not unusual for there to be as many as 6 or 7 within blocks of each other. Why? What is the difference between churches there? How much alike were they?
