Join us for our first Athens Illuminated lecture of the Spring semester. This semester our local Athens history lecture series will focus on Native American history. Don't miss out on this great lecture by Dr. Jace Weaver from the Religion department and free pizza!
From Dr. Weaver,"Athens, of course--I grew up around the University of Georgia, and from its charter in 1785 through 1835, UGA's very existence was intertwined with the history of American Indians in Georgia. I will briefly touch upon the history of Indians in the area prior to the founding of UGA. I will then illuminate the university's tangled history with them until Cherokee Removal."
