Atlanta University Center

The Atlanta University Center is a vital part of Atlanta's African-American heritage. The Atlanta University Center is best described as a consortium of six African-American educational institutions: Clark-Atlanta University, Morehouse College, the Morehouse School of Medicine, Spelman College, Morris Brown College and the Interdenominational Theological Center. Most of these colleges and universities date back to the years following the Civil War. Several of them played a role in the Civil Rights Movement. Member campuses of the Atlanta University Center boast a distinguished group of alumni, among them Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the N.A.A.C.P.'s Walter White, writer James Weldon Johnson, opera singer Matwilda Dobbs, filmmaker Spike Lee and Maynard H. Jackson, Jr., first African-American mayor of Atlanta.

The Atlanta University Center makes its home in Atlanta's West End Historic District.
