It documents the people kept in bondage by the Cobb-Lamar family, one of the wealthiest and most politically prominent families in antebellum America, labored in households and on plantations that spanned Georgia. Christopher R. Lawton, Laura E. Nelson, and Randy L. Reid excavated the vast Cobb Family Papers at the University of Georgia to introduce previously untold stories into the historical record. This virtual event allows the opportunity to talk with the authors about their research, findings, and experiences in writing. The event will be live-streamed to the Special Collections Libraries Facebook page.
