Who's Who Pays Tribute to Women
For the past seventeen years, a networking event in Atlanta has brought out the city's top business, community, and political leaders. It's called, "Who's Who in Black Atlanta," and this years' event celebrated the contributions of women. Mayor Shirley Franklin was honored, as well as more than a dozen others.
The event's founder, publisher Sunny Martin is the C.E.O. of Who's Who Publishing, and each year he releases a book, that highlights the most influential Black Americans. Jessie Jackson, Ambassador Andrew Young, Hank Aaron, and radio personalities Ronda Smith, and Frank Ski were among the attendees. The Mayor did not attend due to the recent death of her mother.
