As the former capitol of the "Old South," Atlanta is also the same city that gave birth to the Civil Rights Movement. Today, its home to one of America's most successful African American populations with the power to influence the cultural trends and attitudes for the rest of Black America. Over the next four weeks, as part of our Atlanta Spotlight Series Huffington Post BlackVoices will take you on an intimate tour of the city to show you the who's who, the hot spots and all Hotlanta has to offer.
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star and model Cynthia Bailey shared her thoughts about what it's like living in Atlanta:"I love the quality of life that I can afford to have living in Atlanta," she told Huffington Post. "Being from the south, I love the balance of 'a big city lifestyle' that Atlanta offers. I work between New York City and Atlanta, and the commute is only about two and a half hours, so I feel like between the two cities, I have best of both worlds."
