Among the cracked streets and deserted buildings, the Atlanta Daily World newspaper building, the original home of the oldest continually Black-owned and controlled newspaper founded in 1928, still stands. The publishers left the historic building four years ago after it was ravaged by a tornado in 2008. (Photo: AP Photo/David Goldman)
