In 1961, Hamilton Holmes and Charlayne Hunter became the first Black students to enroll at the University of Georgia. Facing down adversity, they succeeded in desegregating the campus and winning a battle in the broader struggle for civil rights. However, the process of integration and building a more inclusive university continues today.
Join the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library for a virtual tour of the new exhibit "Making Space: Fighting for Inclusion, Building Community at UGA" on Friday, March 19th at 2:00 p.m. Explore the stories of these trailblazing students and those that followed them in shaping the campus.
The event will be live-streamed on our Facebook page. This event is free and open to the public. For more information, email email@example.com
