Tuesday, April 23rd - 12:15-1:30 pm - Tarver Library (2nd/main floor)

Matt Harper's AFR/HIS 363 African American History students have proposed new black public history installations for middle Georgia based on their research into local people, movements, and events. The proposed installations include monuments, outdoor exhibit panels, documentary websites, and interactive historical markers. All are designed to give local black history a more prominent place in public space and to help us see that public space differently. The event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be available.

Students in Dr. Thomas’ PHI 195 classes have been working with Daybreak, Macon’s community center for homeless people, during the spring semester. Students collaborated with Daybreak staff to generate over a dozen different projects that serve the needs of Daybreak and their participants. Projects ranged from film production to research to community-building events. The event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be available.
