JUNE ISSUE: The Editor’s View

By Katrice L. Mines, Editor

When news broke that Lisa Borders was the new head of the WNBA, it was like the universe was blessing our decision to focus the Why We Love Atlanta issue on the city’s major sports franchises. It was a completely serendipitous moment on the heels of our historic February cover story featuring Borders among 17 African-American women from Coca-Cola who were senior executives within the company. If she had stopped there, as chair of The Coca-Cola Foundation and vice president of Global Community Affairs, we would be no less impressed with her career. After all, as you’ll read in Kamille D. Whittaker’s chronicling of her rise to this point, it has been nothing short of inspiring. But, I get the feeling that she’s only just begun.

Also in this issue:

-The best summer of your life in Atlanta is right at your fingertips thanks to all all-encompassing guide of where to be and what to do all season long.

-Updates on the Falcons and Atlanta Braves’ stadiums.

-Where to go abroad for summer vacation (Hint: The Cove at Eleuthera tops our picks.) … Plus, a few really good hacks to make your travel better.  AT
