Brunswick Business Journal Staff Report

August 29, 2017 - The College of Coastal Georgia held a book-signing event today honoring the recent release of a book written by Professor Emeritus Jean Choate.

Her book, “Voices Seldom Heard: Women, Blacks and Children of the Georgia Coast, 1850-1870,” dives deep into the area's Civil War-era history, focusing on the lives of women, Blacks and children,groups whose experiences are rarely told in the history books.

A history professor for 18 years, Choate is currently teaching part-time at Coastal College in Brunswick.

Choate has dedicated much of her life to excavating history through the power of writing, publishing articles in various academic and history journals. Her contributions have been included in Encyclopedia U.S.A. and also published by Simon and Schuster and St. Martin's Press. Voices Seldom Held is Choate's fifth book. Her four previous books include Disputed Ground: Farm Groups That Opposed the New Deal; At Sea Under Impressment; Eliza Johnson: Unknown First Lady; and Disputed Ground: Farm Groups that Opposed the New Deal Farm Program. All of her books have brought out suppressed or little-known parts of the region's history, making her work significant to the Golden Isles.

The Aug. 29 book signing was hosted by the library at the College of Coastal Georgia's Brunswick Campus.

“Voices Seldom Heard: Women, Blacks and Children on the Georgia Coast, 1850 to 1870” is currently available at the College's bookstore as well as at Hofwyl Broadfield and at the Coastal Georgia Historical Society.
