In honor of Black History Month, the Clayton State University Office of Interdisciplinary Studies, and the Departments of Teacher Education, Humanities, English, Visual and Performing Arts, and Social Sciences, will present the next edition of the Clayton State Speaker Education Series, a talk by author Calvin Alexander Ramsey, and a concert reading of his play, “The Green Book.”
Both the talk and the concert reading will be held on Monday, Feb. 27, from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., in the Clayton State Theatre, room G132 of the University’s Arts & Sciences Building. Both are free and open to the public.
“The Green Book” deals with one of the missing pages of American History, how black travelers found food and lodging before the Civil Rights Act. Ramsey will speak about the Civil Rights Movement and his work as a writer of children’s books beginning at 4:30 p.m., followed by a brief reception and then the reading of his play at 6:30 p.
