by Anna Foote #1

Anna Foote is an Atlanta native who was among the first to move into a Ponce City Market apartment, though the high rent subsequently made her move out. I interviewed her in January 2015 when she still lived there, and she told me how she helped to save the Masquerade building just across North Avenue, which was still a grungy music venue at the time (listen to this part in clip #1). I also learned that Foote is a singer, so I got her to sing “Barbecue” for me (listen to this in clip #2). She is now the Executive Deputy Director of Hope Atlanta, which provides a safety net for low-income travelers, newcomers and residents in crisis and homeless.
