Stacey Abrams was 17 years old in 1991 when she was first told she couldn’t enter the governor’s mansion in the affluent Buckhead district of Atlanta. She and her parents stepped off the MARTA bus stop nearby and walked toward the guards booth, where they were met with the blunt response. “You can’t come in here,” she remembers the guard on duty telling them.

And louder. The blaring monotone warning radiated from every direction."In a tornado, the siren will shut off when the storm passes. These were much louder and blasted for a long time.
