Description: Greene County, Georgia, follows the lives of a people once burdened by the yoke of slavery through their struggles and important accomplishments of today. Located 80 miles east of Atlanta, Greene County is a place with a history rooted in faith. It was a site for many churches that began in "brush arbors," spaces where former slaves could gather for worship and express themselves freely. This volume also illuminates some of the area's most influential residents, including Abraham Colby, the county's first African American to serve as representative in the general assembly in 1868, and Dr. Calvin M. Baber, the county's second African-American physician.
