History, Georgia State University
Mary Rolinson is an Atlanta native and a Senior Lecturer in the Georgia State University Department of History. Her expertise is in African American history, twentieth century U.S. history, and Georgia history. Her first book, Grassroots Garveyism: The Universal Negro Improvement Association in the Rural South, was published by the University of North Carolina Press in 2007 as part of the John Hope Franklin series in African American History and Culture. Georgia History and African American History are in her regular rotation of undergraduate and graduate classes. As one would expect, Atlanta looms large in all of these courses.
