The year was 1933. In the grips of the Great Depression, the nation’s masterminds were hard at work creating the Mount Rushmore National Memorial, inventing the chocolate chip cookie, and creating the iconic board game Monopoly. It was the decade in which Atlanta was immortalized in Margaret Mitchell’s Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, Gone with the Wind. Despite economic and social disenfranchisement and the existence of Jim Crow laws, a prosperous black middle and upper class began to appear. “Sweet” Auburn Avenue came to be widely considered “the most prosperous Negro street in the nation.”
