A petition is circulating to rename South Hall’s Jim Crow Road, which has no relation to the segregationist South, but rather traces its history to a man who was a community leader. The Flowery Branch City Council voted July 2 to change the name for the portion of the road within the city limits to G.C. Crow Road. - photo by Jeff Gill
The portion of Jim Crow Road within the Flowery Branch city limits will be renamed G.C. Crow Road, a move city officials and residents said Thursday would clarify its lack of connection to segregationist laws and send a more positive message.
