Developing the Legacy of Isaac Scott Hathaway as a Community Development Resource for Macon County, Alabama
The 2012 Auburn ATP researched and developed resources to assist The Tuskegee Human and Civil Rights Multicultural Center with the assessment of Hathaway materials; increased public knowledge of Hathaway's importance and interest in the period of history in which he lived and worked in Macon County; documented memories by local, living people who knew Hathaway as teacher and friend; and disseminated notice of Hathaway materials to the state, region, and nation. Students enrolled in 2012 fall semester course CCEN 2000: Introduction to Community and Civic Engagement worked with the Center director and a Citizen Advisory Committee. They participated in a two-hour introduction to the Center to help them understand from the community partner the history of the Center, its role in introducing Macon County to visitors, and the role of the Hathaway project in its work.
