Intertwined Integration: The Story of Desegregation at Three Major Georgia Universities
MetadataShow full item record
Archivists from University System of Georgia Institutions present on a collective topic from our schools’ histories to tell the story of higher education in Georgia, community development around the schools, and well-known Georgia alumni. Having access to many institutional archives increases resources and perspectives on a topic. Sometimes verification of historical anecdotes or answers to questions comes from evidence outside of the institution's own records. Using the archival materials from each institution’s collections as well as related records found in the Georgia Archives, the presenters show how research across archival institutions reveals intertwined stories. In leaning on each other in this way, we celebrate the practice of archival record keeping in its ability to provide dynamic accounts of historical events that support public services to our patrons, communities, and stakeholders.
