Dr. Reid Uncovers Lost Histories in New Book

Humanities Department Chair Dr. Randy Reid helps uncover the lost histories of enslaved peoples in the South in his new book, Seen/Unseen, Hidden Lives in a Community of Enslaved Georgians. Written and edited by Dr. Reid, Christopher R. Lawton and Laura E. Nelson, Seen/Unseen is "a vivid portrait of the complex network that created, held, and sustained a community of the enslaved... Christopher R. Lawton, Laura E. Nelson, and Randy L. Reid have meticulously excavated the vast Cobb Family Papers at the University of Georgia to introduce into the historical record the lives of Aggy Carter and her father George, Rachel Lamar Cole, Alfred Putnam, Berry Robinson, Bob Scott, and Sylvia Shropshire and her daughter Polly." The book is available April 1, 2020, from University of Georgia Press. Congratulations to Dr. Reid on this great accomplishment! Click here for more information and pre-order details.
