Freaknik Memories

New, 5 comments

Mention Freaknik to any native Atlantan and you're in for an earful — while the celebrations ended years ago, the memories are still fresh in many peoples' minds. Atlanta magazine has interviewed a host of local characters, among them Mayor Kasim Reed, rapper Luther "Uncle Luke" Campbell and councilman Kwanza Hall, to get their memories down for posterity. With Mayor Reed saying things like "I think that Freaknik was a good thing—until it wasn't," you know it's worth a read. [Image: Straight from Thea]
