We are happy to present half a dozen new videos which are now online for your viewing pleasure! There are videos of two RSL programs from the last year: Athens Then & Now, and The Adventures of Making a Documentary of a Famous Dead Person, featuring Gary Doster and Dr John Campbell. There is also a video of the slide talk by artists James Barnes and Broderick Flanigan, a community discussion about Athens’ Confederate monument, a ceremony honoring Athens historian Charlotte Thomas Marshall, and the presentation of the Library of The Year award.
What a Difference 100 Years Can Make! Gary Doster shares his voluminous collection of photos and postcards of Athens in this video showing houses and scenes around town that no longer exist, followed by photos of what the location looks like now. It is a trip by postcard through the distant and more recent past, accompanied by reminiscences and commentary.
