Steering Committee: Jubilee Project (Charleston, SC)

Press/Media: Public Engagement Activities

Description

I was invited onto and served on the Steering Committe of the Jubilee Project, a public collaboration across the College of Charleston, the South Carolina Lowcountry and beyond, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation, the 50th anniversary of the desegregation of public education in South Carolina, and commemorating other key events both of 1863 and of the Civil Rights movement in 1963.  This involved a series of planing meetings drawing together academic experts, heritage and cultural workers, and secondary level educators along with a public lecture on Slave Emancipation in South Carolina and a presentation for teachers and research hisotrians at the SC State Archives in Columbia.
