Maurice J. Hobson uses his love of history to strategically analyze some of the topics truest to his upbringing and livelihood. As a scholar, professor and prominent American South historian, he presents his chronicles with an experiential and academically-honed perspective on the national and international implications surrounding topics of electoral politics, race and the black new South.

Hobson's practiced lens applies modern perspective to historical themes he has long studied and identified in phenomena such as Olympification.  His unexampled contributions to the discussion on current state of the American South, has led to work in consulting, speaking and his latest book, The Legend of the Black Mecca: Politics and Class in the Making of Modern Atlanta.
