Atlanta gay activists, lawmakers donate personal papers to Emory

The papers of some of Atlanta's most well-known gay activists will be donated to Emory University on Thursday during a screening of "Breaking Through," a documentary about openly gay politicians.

Donating their personal papers to Emory's Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL) are Doraville City Councilmember Brian Bates, state Rep. Karla Drenner, veteran political activist Ken Britt and Atlanta City Councilmember Alex Wan. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. and will be held in the Jones Room at Emory's Robert W. Woodruff Library.
