Atlanta high school will change name to honor Hank Aaron instead of prominent Klan member

An Atlanta high school will experience a new beginning and, appropriately, will be renamed Hank Aaron New Beginnings Academy. First reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Aaron will become the namesake of the alternative high school formerly known as Forrest Hill Academy. "Forrest" refers to Nathan Bedford Forrest, a Confederate general and the first Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. It's not the first time that references of Forrest have been replaced or removed. In Tennessee, for instance, a bust of Forrest was removed from the state Capitol last month. In 2017, a statue of Forrest was removed from a Memphis park where he and his wife were buried.
