University of Georgia Unveils Exhibit
Honoring Charlayne Hunter-Gault
ATHENS, Ga. — Recognizing the need to commemorate the importance of the dormitory in which Charlayne Hunter-Gault resided when she was one of two students to desegregate the University of Georgia in 1961, the university unveiled a permanent exhibit in the lobby of Myers Hall last month that focuses on the award-winning journalist and her achievements both at UGA and beyond. Myers Hall became the stage for an angry protest during Hunter’s (Gault) third night on campus with a rioting mob protesting in front of the building.
