Sundiata Rush

Project Support Grant - Oral Histories & Lectures 

Sundiata Rush is a brand strategist, community-builder and storyteller. He enjoys stirring culture and stoking engagement for look-good/feel-good/do-good initiatives rooted in authenticity. His superpowers include ideation, intuition, and turning verve into verse.

A&E funds will be used to produce Tales of Downtown Atlanta (TODA) a compilation of curated audio stories written and voiced by notable Atlantans – spotlighting places, heritage, and culture Downtown. A combination of prominent and lesser-known venues will be chosen as the focus of the stories. Part podcast, exhibit, and old-school mix tape, Tales of Downtown Atlanta (TODA) will connect the dots of Atlanta’s rise as a civil rights mecca and capitol of the South.

In recent years, Sundiata has published several articles in local media supporting strivings for more access, equity, and mobility in-town via the Atlanta BeltLine. This includes pieces in SaportaReport and Urbanize Atlanta.

Always on the lookout for inspiration, and hungry for fresh endorphins, his pastimes include hiking, theatre, fitness, books, road trips, and any escapades to explore new places and culture.
