Remembering Professor Raymond Gavins
Professor Raymond Gavins passed away last week, at the age of 77, leaving behind a powerful legacy from his time as a historian at Duke University. The Atlanta native helped build an audio treasure trove of previously unheard African-American voices from the era of legalized segregation. The collection is known as the "Behind the Veil Project."
We take a moment to eulogize Gavins and remember the arduous journey he took in order to better his fellow man.
