The event will feature remarks from two distinguished guests—Dr. Orville Vernon Burton, the Judge Matthew J. Perry Distinguished Chair of History, Pan-African Studies, Sociology and Anthropology, and Computer Science at Clemson University and Dr. Otis Johnson, a former two term mayor of Savannah—followed by a Q&A.
