"Celebrating Lillian Smith"
October 26, 2019 | 8 AM - 4 PM
Observations and activism from the 1940s, 50s, and 60s are perfectly relevant today. Throughout her career as a writer and humanitarian, Lillian Smith examined how the arts engage people around issues of social injustice, segregation, and isolation. The family home of Lillian Smith in Clayton, Georgia, is now an educational center operated by Piedmont College.
Through presentations and conversation with special guest speakers and artists, this symposium will celebrate the life and works of Lillian Smith.
