Former State Senator Georgia Powers speaks at Barnes & Noble Thursday night. Anne Onyekwuluje presented her book, “Historical Influences: Reading Georgia Powers As A Grassroots Civil Rights Leader In The Rough Business of Kentucky Politics,” at the store. Okyekwuluje is an associate professor in the Department of Sociology at WKU and positions Powers politically with women like Harriet Martineau and Ida B. Wells in anchoring the truth about rights, responsibility, and humanity.
