On Thursday, Feb.21 GPC Dunwoody students and the surrounding communities were treated to a special opening event for the national traveling exhibit: “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War.
The event was made possible by a grant from the National
Endowment for the Humanities and was organized by the National Constitution Center as well as the American Library Association.
Students and neighbors filled the auditorium upon its featured address entitled “Abraham Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation.”
Several GPC faculty took part in the production.
Dr. Paul Hudson, Associate Professor of History took part in promoting the event and delivering the historical information. Greg McLean, Associate Professor of Music, along with a brass quartet performed selections from the Civil War era.
Students can still view the exhibit which will be on display through April 3 in the Dunwoody Campus Library.
