How do you get a historian excited? You rebuild a historical building that was torn down and you bring it back to life. 

 

That’s exactly what Grant Rivera and the Marietta School Board have decided to do. The site of the old Lemon Street High School, the black high school in Marietta, was torn down after integration in the 70’s. Now it is being rebuild to house Marietta City Administration offices. There is also work being done to use the Lemon Street grammar school across the street. 

 

Grant Rivera has spearheaded the effort and he shares the story of the importance of telling the whole story of Marietta and building community at the same time.

 

Also, his daughter beat cancer and a fundraiser is coming up at Glover Park Brewery on 9/19/19 from 6 to 9 pm. Get your tickets here: https://give.choa.org/site/Ticketing?view=Tickets&id=101521
