Keisha Lance Bottoms and the rise of an angry black mother

On Friday night, as the heart of her city fell into chaos, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms rehabilitated that word, “angry” – but not as a black woman. Rather, as a righteously angry black mother. And a somewhat fearful one, too.

Our Story

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution traces its roots to 1868, the founding date of The Atlanta Constitution. The Atlanta Journal debuted in 1883. The papers have been under common ownership since 1950 and fully merged in 2001. The newspaper is owned by Cox Enterprises, a family-owned company that has been in Atlanta since 1939. While the newspaper is owned by a private company, its news decisions are made by the journalists in the AJC’s newsroom.

Our mission is to report what’s really going on in your community. We uncover the truth, protect the public’s right to know and hold community leaders accountable for serving the public. We document our region’s moments, milestones and people. Every day, we inform and empower our readers who value credible, in-depth journalism. By providing this important public service, we ultimately help to build a better metro Atlanta and Georgia for the next generation.

How We Work


  • Our editors, reporters and photojournalists operate with highest ethical standards.

  • We take great pains to assure that our reporting is accurate and promptly correct any errors of fact.

  • Our journalists report independently and strive for fairness.

  • They seek to balance various and conflicting points of view and eliminate partisan bias from their reporting.

  • In print and online, the AJC reports the complete, accurate truth as best we can in clear and concise language.

  • We treat people we write about fairly and openly. We work hard to avoid surprising anyone about what they may read about themselves in the AJC.

  • We tread lightly into someone's personal life and reveal no more than is absolutely necessary.

  • We don't pay sources for tips or story subjects for interviews. We don't trade favorable coverage for any consideration including access.

  • Our journalists reveal their affiliation with the AJC when reporting.
  • The AJC focuses its reporting staff on local matters and closely monitors state and local governments, the local economy, entertainment and sports. Our journalists and editors pursue the stories that we believe are most important to you. We are fierce defenders of the First Amendment and open government. We strive to be transparent and want to be clear about where we get information used in our stories.

    As a major regional newspaper, we include national and foreign news. We cover issues that matter locally through our bureau in Washington. For most nation and world coverage, we rely on our trusted news partners, such as the Associated Press, The New York Times and The Washington Post. Our partners have well-established reporting and editing practices and we monitor offerings from these news services and select stories we believe meet our standards for accuracy, fairness and balance.

    All decisions about what we report and where we display our journalistic content are made by journalists in the AJC’s newsroom.

    REMEMBER THAT TIME A MINNESOTA COP SHOT A WOMAN IN HER PJ's MULTIPLE TIMES ? REMEMBER HOW WE ALL RIOTED AND STOLE TVs ? [ if the wrongful killing of a black man by a white cop bothers you more than the wrongful killing of a white woman by a black cop in the same city, you might be a racist ] #AllLivesMatter

    you guys are on some total BS today. The bottom right article says the reason the Virus is on the rise is unknown??? This paper has a history of turning a blind eye to the impact of white privilege and its NEGATIVE effect on the world. Our rates are up because white men refuse to use the brains they were given and put on mask and wash their hands. The AJC staff is full of cowards afraid to stand up to their bigoted owner.
    Do you have any idea why the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance is held up? We need the help, seriously!
    What happened to the post of the Minneapolis man being held down by HIS NECK by a cop?
    Okay AJC: WHERE is coverage of both sides of ANY issue?? WHY did you change the editorial page and only show one side of anything?? HATE your new format!!
    Nothing works within inner-city African America; political, social, nor religious and from Sea to Shining Sea - and the result became the total breakdown of law on the civil side of the system within our inner-cities. This also made for the dog eat dog environment of the inner-city where black males gun one another down almost daily. My siblings and I were raised by the State of California within a plethora of abodes; i.e. jails, institutions, foster homes, and gender based homes until we reached the age of the majority because of the same. Every year my siblings and I would be brought before the Juvenile Court filled by our black leadership and the non black judges would always issue the same order "The parents are guilty of no criminal violation nor are the children guilty of any criminal violation. My order to you (my black leadership within the courtroom) is for an abode and the necessities of life for the civil case of my parent's predated the involvement of the Juvenile Court. My black leadership simply allowed the State of California to ASSUME custody over my siblings and I to protect the interests of the Los Angeles Unified School District. My parent's civil case has been an agreed matter since the 1960's yet the enforcement of the judgement has yet to take place. I did not learn to read nor write until I was well into my 20's and thus:
