The Georgia Southern University History Department is collaborating with Telfair Museum’s Legacy of Slavery in Savannah Initiative with “The Past, Present, and Future of Voting Rights,” a panel presentation meant to spark a conversation about the history and future of voting rights in Georgia. 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. Join us after the event for a book signing featuring Professor Burton’s latest Justice Deferred: A History of Race and the Supreme Court and Mayor Johnson’s From N-Word to Mayor: Experiencing the American Dream.
