Twenty-four Athens area high school students had a unique opportunity recently to discuss the Civil Rights movement with one of its pioneers, Grady College alumna and one of the University of Georgia’s first African American students, Charlayne Hunter-Gault.

The Peabody Award-winning journalist detailed her personal experiences of desegregating the University of Georgia in her autobiography, In My Place. She was on campus to discuss her latest book, To the Mountaintop: My Journey Through the Civil Rights Movement.
