“Unfortunately, the preservation of our history and culture is not a foregone conclusion. The reopening of the Daily World Building represents the revitalization of an icon that hung in the balance, and we are all very happy about that.

Originally constructed in 1912, the building was home to the oldest African American newspaper in continuous operation in the United States, the Atlanta Daily World, which occupied the building from 1946 through March 2008.
