Atlanta Walk Of Fame
The Atlanta Walk of Fame is a 501 (c)(3) organization that firmly believes our future is better built on a past we honor; therefore, we do both. We preserve the history of well-deserved heroes who have richly given back to their communities with a striking commemorative Atlanta Walk of Fame star embedded in the sidewalks of various landmarks throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area. In addition, we teach under-served youth how to be the heroes in their communities through cultural arts and educational programs, such as theatre, film music, and dance.
