The Donald L. Hollowell Lecture was initiated by Dr. Obie Clayton, the Donald L. Hollowell Distinguished Professor of Social Justice and Civil Rights Studies in UGA’s School of Social Work, to annually invite nationally and internationally known experts who have conducted work in the civil and human rights and social and economic sustainability arenas.
The professorship and lecture are named in honor of Donald L. Hollowell, a legendary civil rights attorney and lead counsel in Holmes v. Danner, the landmark case that secured admission to UGA for Hamilton Holmes and Charlayne Hunter, the first African-American students to register for classes at the university in 1961.
The event is co-sponsored by the School of Social Work and the Foot Soldier Project for Civil Rights Studies. For more information on the School of Social Work, see http://ssw.uga.edu. For more information on the Foot Soldier Project see, http://footsoldier.uga.edu/.
