AJC: Coke donates land for civil rights museum in Atlanta

Coca Cola does the right thing: "Following a tradition of landmark gestures to the city, Coca-Cola has agreed to grant a piece of land next to the Georgia Aquarium for an attraction honoring Atlanta as the cradle of the civil rights movement.

Coca-Cola Chief Executive Neville Isdell made the surprise announcement at a lunch of downtown business leaders Monday. He and Mayor Shirley Franklin struck a deal for the 2.5-acre property last week."
