Mullins publishes article on Augusta history

   Robert A. Mullins recently published an article on the Augusta Sea Beach. The Sea Beach was an African-American entertainment venue in Augusta during the 1930's. It featured musical entertainment such as internationally acclaimed lyric tenor, Arthur Lee Simpkins, and swing bands led by Count Basie and Fats Waller. It also had a 1,200-seat baseball stadium, which hosted the Augusta All-Stars, a Negro League baseball team. The article appears in the fall edition of the Augusta Richmond County History journal.
   His last book, 12 Monkeys & a Green Jacket, was featured on C-SPAN’s Book TV this past August. Mullins earned his J.D. from the University Of Oregon School Of Law, his M.A. in Political Science from Emory University and his B.S. from Presbyterian College. Mullins has authored numerous professional journal articles, served as the editor of the CSRA Environmental Law Reporter, and is a political science professor at East Georgia State College’s Augusta campus.
