The Macon200 and the Bicentennial History Committee are proud to present the Bicentennial History Series, a twelve-month series of presentations on the history of Macon hosted by Wesleyan College.
This comes as Macon, Georgia, acknowledges 200 years of history, life, culture, change, and community through a year-long celebration of events around the city. Presentations will take place every third Tuesday of the month throughout this year. Each one will follow a different theme, including culture, arts and music, business, education, architecture, and more.
The twelve lectures have been researched, developed, and recorded by a team of 72 Macon-Bibb volunteers who will serve as moderators and/or panelists for these presentations. All twelve history presentations are funded by The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
On Tuesday, January 17, Macon200 kicked off the first of a series of twelve monthly presentations on the history of Macon. This first presentation gave an overview of the past 200 years in slideshow format, narrated by five local experts in the field of Macon History.
The next installment in this series, titled Race, Ethnicity, and Culture, will happen on Tuesday, February 21, from 6 - 8 PM in the Taylor Peyton Anderson Amphitheatre. All events are free and open to the public.
