The Jimmy Carter National Historic Site is partnering with Dr. Antoinette Jackson of the University of South Florida on an ethno-history project on Archery, Georgia. The project encompasses researching and writing an ethno-history of the predominantly African-American community which is the location of the Boyhood Farm of President Jimmy Carter, part of the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site.  The Jimmy Carter National Historic Site is working with Dr. Jackson to examine the social, economic and political life in the community, as well as key individuals, such as the late national African Methodist Episcopal Church leader Bishop Johnson and other contemporary community members.  The ethno-history project also focuses on how growing up in this community influenced and shaped the life of Jimmy Carter.
