It’s quiet at Atlanta’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities right now. The students have been elsewhere since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, yet the contractors and guards are still tending and gatekeeping, pleasantly greeting me as I’m Traveling at the Speed of Bike, working on my latest PeopleForBikes Ride Spot tour.
When it’s bustling there (as usual), you feel the vibrant continuation of the astounding Civil Rights legacies birthed in this space, but on this sunny early-December day at the end of this historic-in-its-own-right year, you feel a sacred reverence.
If you haven’t been there yet, it’s worth a ride.
