The American South has served as a popular topic for scholars, artists, musicians and film makers for decades. A lecture by Dr. Steven Hahn will showcase the rich history of southern states on Sept. 13 in the opening event of the Carter Arts and Lecture Series at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College Bainbridge.
At 7 p.m. in the Kirbo Center Auditorium, Hahn, an American historian from New York University, will speak on “Reconstruction at 150.” In this lecture, curated by the Organization of American Historians, Hahn paints an insightful image of the ways reconstruction has shaped the South in the last 150 years and how the past and present connect.
Other events in the Carter Arts and Lecture Series at ABAC Bainbridge include the screening of the feature film “Creature from the Black Lagoon” on Oct. 25, a poetry reading by Papoleto Melendez on Nov. 15, “Broadway’s Next H!t Musical” on Jan. 31, the ABAC Jazz Ensemble on Feb. 28, and the Turtle Island String Quartet on March 29.
All the events are open to the public at no admission cost. Each event is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in the Kirbo Center Auditorium on the ABAC Bainbridge campus. The Carter Arts and Lecture Series is supported in part by the generosity of the Kirbo Foundation.
