Maynard Jackson Monument at Oakland Cemetery

This is the new Maynard Jackson monument at Oakland Cemetery in Fulton County that was unveiled yesterday. Now that his image is on the front of the monument, he can always look over the city he loved so much.
Cynthia Jennings
He served 3 terms as mayor of Atlanta. He is notable for public works projects, primarily the new Maynard H. Jackson International terminal at the Atlanta airport, and for greatly increasing minority business participation in the city. After his death, the Atlanta Hartsfield airport was re-named the Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport to honor his service to the expansion of the airport, the city and its people
