Biographical/Historical Note

Popham Seminars honor John Popham, the first Southern correspondent for the New York Times and 'journalism's point man' in the Civil Rights movement. The Popham Seminars occurred every year from 1969-1999. "Popham Seminars honor two things: language, the art of articulating the human experience; and the courage and passion of those who wrote and acted for civil liberty at a turning point in our national nightmare of racial intolerance. We come together to hear the stories of that struggle and to honor its heroes" -- Don Eastman, University of Georgia, Vice-president for strategic planning, "Where words go to play and sing" / Laura Wexler.
