Almost simultaneously, the world is adopting smartphones and embracing social media. A majority uses smartphones for social media — to view and share art, music, and culture, express and share opinions, and even post strident social and political views across the ideological spectrum. Interestingly, people who use social media to post about issues are more likely to see democracy as an effective way to influence policy decisions, raise awareness, change minds, and pay attention to critical issues.

WHO SHOT FREAKNIK?

It should be acknowledged that no matter how vivid or dramatic a story is, the average person cannot know the frisson of coming face-to-face with the combined naked power of suspects Atlanta corporate boardrooms, Atlanta City Hall and the Georgia State Legislature. FREAKNIK’s troubles were retribution for demanding inheritance rights, bringing down the raft of the new/old southern hierarchy. The descendants of the denied demanded and expected entitlement. It was their blood-soaked inheritance from long-free labor. There is a cause-and-effect link between Freaknik, segregation, Civil Rights, and the history of Atlanta. The next generation of the civil rights movement wanted FREAKNIK. Instead, they got blasted by regentrification’s sabotage and distortion “smoking gun” …

Any correct understanding of FREAKNIK requires understanding Atlanta in terms of race, elitism, and politics. It is a subplot to a complicated, otherwise alarming, fascinating, and shameful story. What began for Atlanta University students to be a way to make the best of being stranded in town over spring break. A 1970s free picnic party in a neighborhood park in the community. After that, a different group of students each year after year, adding to what became the popular, much-anticipated Freaknic into the beginning of 1990. 1994 it became a much bigger thing: “FREAKNIK,” a phenomenon that only happens in America. That transformation, while impressive, portended a threat to long-established politically and culturally colonial institutions in Atlanta and more excellent Georgia. The blowback is ominous. … 

It begins with the brutal enslavement of generations of free people until interrupted by the American Civil War. After the Civil War, during the Reconstruction Period, a bloody massacre happened in Atlanta in 1915. Black people – men, women, and children — were attacked and murdered on the downtown streets of Atlanta. It was on those same streets in the 1960s the American Civil Rights Movement began. After that, Black America appointed Atlanta the “Seat of The Civil Rights Movement.” 1974 Maynard Holbrook Jackson Jr., Black American attorney and politician, was elected as the 54th mayor of Atlanta, Georgia, holding office from 1974 to 1982 and again the city’s 56th mayor in 1990. …

Maynard Holbrook Jackson Jr., a brilliant young Black man, was elected Atlanta’s first Black mayor on October 16, 1974. His term wouldn’t begin until January 1975. Jackson started building modern Atlanta, transforming the sleepy state capital in the middle of a forest into a gleaming modern metropolis and building a world-class International Airport. No other person in Georgia had, before or since, conducted all Maynard Jackson did at one time. Jackson also created one of America’s most potent voting block coalitions, Black civil rights activists, and committed white liberals. In approximately 1978, during spring break, a group of stranded Black college students organized a free picnic party in a park in the Black neighborhood over the third weekend in April, then named it “Freaknic.” … 

Regentrification is the movement of elitism economics as it sweeps across urban cityscapes in the United States, including up and down the East and West coasts. Its presence in Atlanta coincided with efforts by the scions of the old southern aristocracy to retake control of metro Atlanta politics, and et al. l. Its focus merged with developing social fissures, fracturing the political coalition, and mishandling the rapidly evolving Freaknic. From 1992 to 1994, the event organically grew to be the most significant gathering of young African Americans in Atlanta since the civil rights movement. However, this mass event had no centralized coordination and no structural organization. As words of Freaknic spread from one southern HBCU campus to another, spring break attendance swelled tremendously as words went out to neighboring Black college campuses. …

In 1994, state and local police intentionally blocked all access to Lakewood Fairground, west of downtown Atlanta. Lakewood was the premier event location: 117 square acres of open campus, a 15-acre lake, onsite parking for 10,000 cars (not counting around the outside perimeter), three main outdoor full concert stages, three exhibition halls the size of passenger airplane hangars, with four added indoor live performance stages. Lakewood Fairgrounds was where Luther Campbell (2 Live Crew), Jermain Dupri (propelling eleven singles), and other Atlanta hip-hop music luminaries came to launch their chart-topping careers. In 1994, Lakewood Fairgrounds was the first event site to follow the lead of FREAKNIK.COM and scheduled shows for the fourth weekend in April to take full advantage of its reach into FREAKNIK World. That realignment transformed a major local Black college celebration into a nationally and internationally recognized mega-destination event. … 

By April 1996, forty million people visited the FREAKNIK.Com website five months before the Atlanta Summer Olympic Games. This sets up the potential for a significant global impact FREAKNIK.COM would have, making FREAKNIK in Atlanta one of America’s most critical extraordinary events. FREAKNIK.COM exceeded every expectation for the internet and social media. FREAKNIK.COM featured live interviews and welcome messages from entertainment stars, prominent sports figures, politicians, and leaders of social justice causes. The message to the nation and the world: Come and enjoy all Atlanta offers. In opposition, Atlanta’s mainstream presses and electronic media stations, with the blessings of Atlanta City Hall, sent messages to the internet audience: “For people coming to Atlanta for Freaknic, there’s nowhere to go and nothing to do.” At the same time, Lakewood Fairground and more were found throughout the metro area.  END.

FREAKNIK.COM RETURNS

FREAKNIK, DELOITTE, AND THE GANG OF NINE

FREAKNIK was the greatest of times; it was the worst of times. It was the wage of freedom, the price of foolishness, a period of ideas, a time of fantasy, the season of anything, a fall to abandonment, a spring to release, the leap before responsibility.

See More

Let’s delve into the intricate narrative of FREAKNIK, a pivotal event in Atlanta’s history during the late 1990s. What initially seemed improbable, upon closer examination, unveiled a story of audacity. A small group of affluent, politically influential Atlanta businesspeople, the Gang of Nine, independently pursued and secured the 1996 Summer Olympic Games bid for Atlanta. This was initially financed privately, granting them control and marginalizing local, regional, or state government authorities. This coincided with a wave of urban revitalization efforts sweeping across America’s most significant metropolitan areas, including the Atlanta region. FREAKNIK, as a symbol of the community’s identity, would inevitably become both a target and catalyst in this struggle.

The stage was set for a dramatic twist. City Hall and public attention were fixated on FREAKNIK. The Gang of Nine executed their strategy with precision. Then, out of the blue, an overlooked clause in the bid application process addressing vehicular traffic and public transportation posed a threat to disqualify the Atlanta bid in the final review. The local press headline blared, “THEY CAN’T EVEN HANDLE FREAKNIK TRAFFIC!” It was painfully evident that the Atlanta Olympic Games Committee had underestimated the importance of this crucial aspect of the bid process. The press reported that ACOG had to seek the assistance of Deloitte US to salvage their bid. FREAKNIK.COM recently published an independent, comprehensive report on Metro Atlanta’s full public transportation capability and more than adequate public and private parking resources.

The report demonstrated that there were more than sufficient public transportation and parking resources throughout the metro Atlanta area to surpass the needs of FREAKNIK and then the Summer Olympic Games. FREAKNIK.COM shared this information with Deloitte, who in turn shared it with The Gang of Nine. The Gang of Nine then took ownership of it, included it as part of their Olympic bid, and released the report to the press. It saved their plan. The vice president of Deloitte was confronted face-to-face with a threat by The Gang of Nine, “To have absolutely nothing more to do with FREAKNIK.COM or the Deloitte contract would be terminated.”

It’s highly likely that no record of this exists elsewhere. True history, being a complex tapestry, is never that straightforward. It would have taken years before even FREAKNIK.COM could connect the dots. Not long after, Pepsi Cola agreed to sponsor an outdoor music festival on a horse ranch in East Point City outside of Atlanta, near the international airport. Just weeks before production, in a call to FREAKNIK.COM, a Pepsi-Cola executive reported a call to Pepsi from the Office of the Mayor of Atlanta’s office. The Mayor’s office informed Pepsi that any FREAKNIK sponsorship would jeopardize the company’s ability to secure Olympic sponsorship. Eventually, even FREAKNIK. COM consultants will be asked to collaborate with ACOG on the production of extraordinary events. It’s a complex puzzle of facts that has taken years to uncover and piece together.

There is yet more of the story of ACOG and FREAKNIK that is still untold. Impactful things happened before, during, and after the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. Why Researchers should dig deep into the archives of Atlanta’s Neighborhood Planning Units (NPUs), Atlanta City Hall, Georgia State Legislature, city and state regulatory agencies, archives, and the Atlanta print and media news outlets, they all, at one time or another, bowed to the authority of ACOG’s Gang of Nine. They all kept independent records that would add to the authentic story of the 1996 games. Documenting things not intended for public sight but that should be brought to light for the public good.

THE BIRTH OF SOCIAL MEDIA

In a groundbreaking moment in February 1996, FREAKNIK.COM catapulted social media onto the global stage. As the first platform to enable internet users to share ideas and information freely, it quickly amassed a staggering thirteen million online users by April of the same year. This unprecedented move inspired an estimated one million people to flock to metro Atlanta for the FREAKNIK in 1996 and 1997, creating that pivotal moment in social media history.

FREAKNIK.COM, in 1996, transformed an event that started in 1975 in a neighborhood park into an extraordinary, first-of-a-kind national event. The opportunity lost was re-engineering the event to mount the national stage. Never was a consortium formed to take the necessary steps to bring the event up to worldwide standard. Its emergence onto the world’s stage was considered inconceivable even in the nineteen nineties.

FREAKNIK.COM drew more than one million visitors to metro Atlanta on the fourth weekend of April 1996. People from everywhere came, even from overseas, going to concerts, clubs, and eateries, booking lodging, buying gasoline, and shopping in malls. It was estimated by Atlanta Visitors and Convention Bureau executives that nine hundred and fifty million dollars were spent alone in metro Atlanta due to FREAKNIK. Moreover, tens of thousands of visitors to Atlanta packed into vehicles. They spent their way there and back to and from every conceivable direction across the country for FREAKNIK in 1996 and 1997. That aspect of their economic impact was never reported. Neither was spending based on bus, plane, or train travel.

Into obscurity, the pivotally important role of Rev. Andrew Young in securing the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympic Games for Atlanta also was FREAKNIK.COM’s. Initially, the group of wealthy Atlanta financers who would become known as the “Gang of Nine” put in their independent bid for the Summer Olympic Games, only then discovering they had absolutely no credentials for entry into the international Olympics voting society. The only person in all of Georgia, one of the very few in America, was the former US diplomatic representative to the United Nations, the Rev. Andrew Young, who singularly secured the needed votes to keep the Atlanta bid in play. Now began the public and press ridicule from every quarter, “The nerve of them to compete with the biggest cities in the country.”

Read More

The city’s major daily newspaper ran a glaring front-page headline, which even appeared on the TV news: “THEY CAN’T EVEN MANAGE FREAKNIK!!!” Asserting: The Absurdity of An Atlanta Olympic Games Bid. FREAKNIK.COM self-published its independent detailed report documenting the ample Metro-Atlanta’s public transportation system: buses, rail trains, stations, stops, transfer points, and terminations, identifying contiguous parking locations, both private and public. The report was straightforward and adequate; there was already a more than adequate interface between car traffic and public transportation resources to offset FREAKNIK traffic demands. Evidence of disruptive traffic control tactics by metro authorities unwarranted political dirty tricks to undermine FREAKNIK. The report was released to Deloitte Touche Consulting (today Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited) for an end-run around City Hall’s opposition. That FREAKNIK.COM traffic resources report was released to Deloitte Touche Consulting, relabeled, and submitted to the International Olympic Committee, securing the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympic Games bid.

TODAY’S REAL SOCIAL MEDIA IS FREANIK.COM

Today’s Internet is not like before. The world now primarily uses smartphones to access the Internet — Asia-Pacific countries, Africa, Latin America, and America to Europe — social media predominates among the under-thirty world population. Overwhelmingly, America is at the forefront of social media use, and at least 84 percent use smartphones. In emerging and developing economies, half or more of the younger adults use smartphones to access social media. Worldwide, the more educated you are, the higher your income, the more likely you are to access social media using smartphones.

In the past, marketing followed sheer demographics. Today, marketing is about collecting, measuring, and interpreting analytical data—attitudes, values, lifestyles, motivations, opinions, dislikes, and wants. It finds and defines macro and micro adjustments in line production, affects audience development and message strategies, delivers proof of values, and offers action options. Competitiveness requires social media listening to and interpreting algorithms -hashtags, tweets, retweets, and other insights. Understanding critical overriding importance and reporting meanings –whether clients, audiences, or producers, social algorithm reporting enables adapting and scaling programming to macro or micro responses to the performance of social profiles and posts. These algorithms can be compiled as essential data into distinct pattern reports for stakeholders or customers. Such reports can be targeted or customized to comments, visualize graphs, and emerging data charts matching individualized needs. Even generalizations to real-time competitor analyses or strategic brand mentions.

It has the universal affinity of jazz, rhythm and blues, funk, disco, hip-hop, rap, basketball, Indigenous art, and fashion infinitely more than any other before. Its mission is to bridge cultural barriers, breach cultural divisions, and be welcomed, a multi-generational passport to communities around the globe. 

HOW FREAKNIK.COM IMPACTED ATLANTA

In 1996, FREAKNIK.COM singularly lifted Atlanta’s entertainment profile, for the first time in its history, onto the worldwide stage.

FREAKNIK.COM is unquestionably the principal purveyor of Atlanta’s hip-hop, rap music, and media, nationally and globally.
