  • Margaret Mitchell House 979 Crescent Ave NE Atlanta, GA, 30309 United States

The Atlanta History Center hosts Jim Auchmutey at the Margaret Mitchell House in Midtown Atlanta. The event is co-sponsored by The Bitter Southerner, the online magazine, for whom Jim is writing an article about the story behind The Class of '65. A crucial part of the book explores the disturbances that erupted over voting rights in Americus, Ga., 50 years ago this summer. In many ways, Americus was the closing chapter of what began in Selma.
