Georgia Trailblazers

February 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Since 1961, Black students have been blazing trails at the University of Georgia.

Join four of those Georgia Trailblazers on Monday, Feb. 22, for a virtual conversation in honor of the 60th anniversary of desegregation at UGA. What is it like to be the “first”? How are these panelists’ achievements connected? They’ll look back at their experiences at UGA and discuss how they broke barriers. Panelists include:

  • Mary Frances Early (MMED ’62, EDS ’67), first Black graduate
  • Chuck Kinnebrew (BSED ’75), one of the first Black football players
  • Mark Anthony Thomas (BBA ’01), first Black editor of The Red & Black
  • Christina Swoope Carrere (BS ’11), first Black female drum major

The discussion will be moderated by Yvette Daniels (AB ’86, JD ’89), the first Black female vice president of the UGA Alumni Association Board of Directors.
