Nuburbia is located in Mableton, GA, a modern-day suburb of Atlanta on the land of the Mvskoke (Muscogee/Creek) people and the site of a former plantation. The town is named for the plantation’s owner, Robert Mable. Over the last two decades, the population of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color in Mableton has greatly increased. This, along with similar demographic changes in suburbs across the US, has prompted potentially transformative political and cultural shifts. Nuburbia promotes new approaches to occupying land and building better homes for America’s changing social and cultural landscapes. The affordable and adaptable community and homes intend to serve the wider variety of people moving to the suburbs, acknowledge the Cherokee and Creek and former plantation land they occupy, and offer new images and spaces for shaping American cultural and political ideals.
