Flash Here and There Like Falling Stars: The Life and Work of Dr. Pellom McDaniels III
In memory of Dr. Pellom McDaniels III, the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library at Emory University will host a virtual discussion of Dr. McDaniels’s life and work as part of the Rosemary Magee Creativity Conversation series, in partnership with the Decatur Book Festival.
The virtual event will begin with an overview of Dr. McDaniels’s life and work as the curator of African American collections at the Rose Library at Emory, followed by a video remembrance that lyrically touches on his many talents and gifts. A discussion of his legacy and impact on multiple communities with current and former members of the Emory community who worked closely with Dr. McDaniels will follow. Jennifer Gunter King, Director of the Rose Library, will moderate. Registration for the event is required.
