MARIETTA - Join the Marietta Museum of History as it continues its Diverse Cobb series on February 27th, 2020 at 6:30pm. Diverse Cobb programming focuses on many facets of local black history with the goal of educating the community on overlooked, difficult, and complex topics. Marietta native, James Gober, played a pivotal role in our nation’s fight for Civil Rights.  Join us as he shares his experiences growing up in a segregated Marietta, getting arrested during a sit-in with Reverend Shuttlesworth, his fight for justice during Gober vs Birmingham and his later work gaining fair housing for all with the Marietta Housing Authority. These are informative and fascinating presentations, and all are welcome to attend. 

Where: City Council Chambers of Marietta City Hall 

205 Lawrence Street

Marietta, GA 20060

Date: February 27th, 2020 at 6:30 pm
