VoteTree and the Hosea Williams Mural is located in Sweet Auburn / Old Fourth Ward in Atlanta’s Historic Martin Luther King Jr. District. In the 1960’s, Sweet Auburn was the commercial center of Black Atlanta; and in 1956, Fortune Magazine named it “The richest Negro street in America.” Its unofficial mayor was civil rights activist John Wesley Dobbs, the maternal grandfather of Atlanta’s first African American mayor, Maynard Jackson.
