Donald L. Hollowell: Foot Soldier for Equal Justice Screening

In celebration of Black History Month, join us Tuesday, February 21, 2023, for a screening of Donald L. Hollowell: Foot Soldier for Equal Justice. This documentary chronicles the civil rights attorney's legendary achievements, including serving as lead counsel in Charlayne Hunter-Gault and Hamilton Holmes's case which ultimately ended desegregation at the University of Georgia. Among Hollowell's other notable achievements were the release of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from the Reidsville State Prison, and the overturned execution of then fifteen-year-old Preston Cobb.

CANCELLED: Hargrett Happy Hour: The B-52s

Note: The B-52's have postponed their Athens show on November 15th due to illness. In light of this change, we are cancelling our scheduled Hargrett Happy Hour event.

We still have great items from the band on display in our exhibit "Georgia On My Mind: Finding Belonging in Music History" and hope you will stop by to see them before the exhibit closes on Dec. 9th. If you have any questions, please contact

Thank you,
