VH1 has released the newest chapter of their digital docuseries “Growing Up Black” and this time they are taking viewers to the ATL!

What It’s Like Growing Up Black In Atlanta” takes an up-close-and-personal look at the city of Atlanta, the history of Black excellence that stems from it, the city’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities and their importance within the AUC, and the conversation of “Old Atlanta” v.s. “New Atlanta.” 

The series also shines a light on the ample variety of politicians, civil rights activists, artists and celebrities that were raised in the city and have made a lasting impact on the world because of it.
