Maurice Hobson – The Legend of the Black Mecca: Politics and Class in the Making of Modern Atlanta. University of North Carolina Press, 2019.
Join us on July 8 at 6pm to discuss The Legend of the Black Mecca: Politics and Class in the Making of Modern Atlanta (University of North Carolina Press, 2019) with author Maurice J. Hobson, associate professor of African American studies at Georgia State University. In his book, Hobson explores the history of black Southerners living in Atlanta in the post-World War II era, effectively interrogating the city’s long held-title of “black Mecca.” This virtual book club is free and open to the public. A live Q&A will follow a brief presentation.
