. Georgia university system refuses to rename buildings, insists ‘history’ teaches ‘important lessons’ « JO LEE MAGAZINE

Fox – Georgia’s public university system will not rename any of its 75 buildings with ties to slavery or racial segregation, explaining that “history can teach us important lessons.”

The board voted unanimously on Monday against such changes, nearly a year after it established a committee to study the names and potential changes. The internal committee had advised that changes be made to 75 buildings on campus that are named after Confederate leaders and others.
