“Southern Politics” is the topic of two upcoming programs to be presented by Dalton State College President Emeritus Jim Burran.
He will speak at a Coffee & Conversation program in Chatsworth on Thursday, Aug. 30, and at a Lunch & Learn program at DSC on Friday, Sept. 7. Both programs are hosted by the Dalton State Foundation.
“Georgia’s 1966 campaign for governor proved one of the most interesting in the state’s history,” Burran said. “This was the first time since Reconstruction that a Republican candidate emerged as a legitimate contender. It was this campaign that thrust future President Jimmy Carter into the limelight. And it was this election that put restaurant owner Lester Maddox into the governor’s chair.”
The Chatsworth program is from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Little Rome Italian Restaurant. Coffee and dessert will be served.
The Dalton lunch program begins at noon at The James E. Brown Center at the north end of campus.
Reservations and advance payment are required by two days before the event and may be made by calling (706) 272-4473. Cost is $10. For more information, contact the Dalton State Foundation at (706) 272-4473 or email@example.com.
