John Wesley Dobbs

There is street named for him and a giant bust on Auburn Avenue...but do you really know what he's done? From a rough childhood to railway mail clerk, Grandmaster Mason, husband, father and voting rights activist. He's left a long legacy in the city and especially on the street he loved so much - Auburn Avenue.
