Slavery and the University of Georgia

Location: Russell Special Collections Library Auditorium

Date / Time: 10/16/2016 3:00 PM


Please join us on Sunday, October 16th, 2016 when University of Georgia professor Scott Nesbit and teaching assistant Audrey Thomas discuss the discoveries made by their "Public History and Technology" class that explored the role of slavery in the early years at the University of Georgia. 

Franklin College c.1856

Their presentation shines a light on a little-known and less-discussed aspect of the city's and the University's history, as well as demonstrating how modern history departments are using new tools to explore and make accessible information and details about a community's past with an advertency to the contempoary world.

Both Dr. Nesbit and Ms. Thomas will answer questions at the end of their presentation, and a reception with light refreshments will follow the program.

We think this will be a fascinating look at both the University of Georgia and all the residents of Athens in the antebellum period. We hope to see you there!
