The University of Georgia held a ceremony at Baldwin Hall this morning to dedicate a memorial in tribute to the presumed slaves and former slaves who were buried there. In addition to President Jere Morehead, members of the Baldwin Memorial Advisory Task Force spoke, including Michelle Cook, UGA Vice Provost for Diversity and Inclusion and U. S. District Judge Steve Jones.
"Every aspect of its designis intentional, thought out to the last detail,” according to Jones.
Jones said he thought the task force got it right.
“You know what, I think we did.”
