UGA desegregation chronicled on new site

The University of Georgia will mark the 50th anniversary of its desegregation with a series of events beginning on Jan. 9 and continuing through Feb. 28 (see story). The theme of the commemoration is “Celebrating Courage”-not only of the pioneering students who broke the color barrier, but of those who supported them and those who came after.

The website will allow faculty, staff, students and visitors to keep abreast of events and learn the history of UGA’s moves toward integration.
