Two faculty websites provide an overview of the topic of slavery at the University of Georgia. These websites serve as a useful introduction to the subject and complement this LibGuide's efforts to publicize the variety of sources available:
UGA & Slavery: Enslavement and Its Legacy in Athens, Georgia
The Department of History’s UGA & Slavery website was created in 2018 and is "dedicated to exploring our university’s historic entanglements with the institution of slavery and its legacies in our community."
Slavery at UGA - African American History in Athens, Georgia
The Slavery at UGA digital exhibit linked above is the product of the research and efforts of the Fall 2015 class of HIPR 4160/6160, Public History and Technology, taught by Dr. Scott Nesbit at the University of Georgia. The class split into three groups which determined our main roles in its creation. Research Team: James Bridgforth, Caity Hungate, Hannah Murphey, Dylan Stearns Writing Team: Catherine Koonce, Audrey Thomas, Matt West Design Team: Sean Griffith, Rebecca McManus, Mary Fenwick Parish.
