About this event

The Greene County African American Museum, Inc. (GCAAM) is opening an exhibit to honor the "Original 33". In an effort to continue our truth-telling of Georgia’s History, this new exhibit, called "Expelled Becaue of Color," focuses on the first 33 African Americans elected to the Georgia Assembly. This historical narrative happened 154 years ago this year and the expulsion of these men from the Georgia Assembly took place September 3, 1868.

In honor of this tragic and historic day, GCAAM invites you to our tribute dinner, Saturday, September 3rd, 2022 honoring each of these Legistatures and the counties that they represented in1868. We will not, and cannot return throughout the pages of our historical narrative and change what occured 154 years ago. We only can pay tribute to them by remembering their fearlessness, resilience, humanity, and unwavering commitment to the African American community.
