We Need Khadijah!

Khadijah Abdur-Rahman

I am a daughter of the historic district 10 southwest community. My late parents, James and Victoria Travis Jackson, were entrepreneurs and owned several businesses. Ricky's Seafood and A-1 Screen and Glass were among some of the thriving businesses they ran in the southwest community. I inherited my community service from my parents who were among the first African Americans to purchase a home in the Peyton Chalet Community after the removal of the "Peyton Wall." I am also a product of Peyton Forest Elementary, Benjamin E.Mays High School, Georgia State University, Andrew Young School of Policy Studies and Florida Coastal School of Law. I have a life time history of fighting the "Good Fight" for our community and will continue to do so as the next comissioner for Fulton County District 6.
