Mr. Harris, thank you for the comment. It's so unfortunate that this rich history and the Badger family contributions have been largely ignored. Our mission at Black Mecca of the South Tours is to recover neglected aspects of Georgia’s African American and racial history and demonstrate their integral relevancy to the social, cultural and political life of today’s American society. All the best, Nasir Muhammad blackmeccatours@yahoo.com

Thank you Dr. Harris. It's an honor to present this rich history. I am looking forward to connecting with you. Please check your email. I can be reached at blackmeccatours@yahoo.com and 678.663.0831 All the best, Nasir Muhammad
