Lucy Craft Laney (1854-1933) was born in Macon, Georgia and grew up to be one of our nation’s greatest educators. She earned her higher education at Atlanta University and began teaching in Macon. After she moved to Augusta, she made her greatest contributions in reforming education for African Americans. Lucy Craft Laney’s home was purchased in 1987 and established as a museum in 1991. It promotes the extraordinary legacy of Ms. Laney, as well as the many Black leaders from Augusta who have made significant contributions to our community and the world.
