Rev. Josh Noblitt hosted a community picnic in Piedmont Park

And rounding out our coverage from the weekend was a picnic in Piedmont Park on Sunday, July 18, organized by Rabbi Joshua Lesser and Rev. Josh Noblitt, who was recently the victim of a bias-crime in Piedmont Park. The picnic was held near the same spot Noblitt and his friend were robbed at gunpoint by a group of teens. As part of the day, Noblitt’s friends Carlton and Kari Mackey were photographing attendees in the same spot Noblitt was attacked for a future photo book.
