How We Got Over How We Got Over: Q&A with Ambassador Andrew Young
In March 2009, the Walter J. Brown Media Archives & Peabody Awards Collection at the University of Georgia Libraries hosted Ambassador Andrew Young as he presented the premiere of his new feature-length civil rights documentary, How We Got Over. Young, a former congressman, United Nations Ambassador and mayor of Atlanta, was a leader in the American Civil Rights Movement and one of Dr. Martin Luther King’s closest advisors and confidants. How We Got Over uses unique archival footage from the WSB and WALB Newsfilm Collections held by the UGA Libraries to re-frame the story of the civil rights struggle. This podcast is a recording of the Q & A session with Ambassador Young following the premiere of How We Got Over.

The Harry Crews Collection
Using selections from audiotapes in the Harry Crews collection, librarian Skip Hulett introduces listeners to the wealth of literary material contained in this famous Georgia writer's personal archive at the University of Georgia's Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library. Hear excerpts from tapes of Crews teaching a creative writing seminar at the University of Florida, interviewing tough-guy actors Charles Bronson and Robert Blake, and describing how he approaches his own writing and what kind of an impression growing up a poor tenant farmer's son in Georgia made upon his novels. Skip Hulett is the Georgiana Collection librarian in the Hargrett Library, which houses tens of thousands of rare books and nearly four thousand separate manuscript collections containing historical papers and letters, literary manuscripts, personal memorabilia, and business records.
