Atlanta Mayor to Fill Post at Spelman College

November 27th, 2009 by Ajuan Mance

From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin will begin a one-year professorship at Spelman College starting in January, college officials announced Monday.

Franklin will serve as a Cosby Chair, an endowed professorship program started by the comedian and activist Bill Cosby and his wife, Camille. The program supports professorships in humanities, fine arts and social sciences, according to the college.

Kudos to Spelman for taking advantage of this unique opportunity. What better place for Atlanta’s first Black woman mayor than at the nation’s first four-year college for Black women?
