About The Historic Westside News: The Historic Westside News publication was an initiative that arose from the community’s desire to produce an expanded version of the West End and NPU-L Historic Westside newsletters, ensuring the connectivity of Atlanta Historic Westside communities and creating a space for uncensored community voices. In 2016, the community vision received support and funding from the City of Atlanta’s Living Cities City Accelerator grant that was awarded to increase civic engagement in the Westside neighborhoods and realize their collective vision.
