A CREW Atlanta event

Black History Month Book Club

February 6, 2024

5:00 - 7:30 PM

Join CREW Atlanta’s DEI committee for a lively discussion, followed by a happy hour.  This year’s selection will address the history of race-based practices in real estate development in Atlanta through the story of T. Dallas Smith’s own rise to prominence in the industry - starting from his role as the first black broker to Cushman & Wakefield to the formation of his own brokerage firm.

This session will be moderated by Rita Tene Ellison, a current member of the CREW Atlanta Leadership Class of 2024.

CREW Atlanta DEI is proud to honor Black History Month by featuring local black-owned businesses, catering, and distributors at this event.

T. Dallas will be available to sign books, which will be available for purchase on-site.
