Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...

We had no regular meeting this week, but there are two upcoming events that we want to call to everyone’s attention.
This week's speakers were District Governors Pat and Skip Doyle. The district governor is required by RI to visit each club in the district.
 
Our speaker was to have been historian, David Mark, who was unable to attend because of a death in the family. He would have spoken about the “Rise and Fall of Slavery in Massachusetts."  Briefly, Massachusetts was the first colony to legalize slavery (1641) and the first to end it (1783). Slavery never took hold in the northern colonies as it did in the south mostly because there were no labor intensive cash crops. Instead, northern slaves were primarily prestige property for the upper class.
