Columbia Conversations | Black life in Columbia during the late Jim Crow era
Free, but registration is required
St. Luke’s Episcopal Church : 1300 Pine Street, Columbia, SC 29204
Beryl Dakers, Columbia native and pioneering broadcast journalist, will lead a conversation with professor and historian Thavolia Glymph (Duke University) and professor and author Randall Kennedy (Harvard Law School). Both were born in Columbia in the early 1950s. Growing up in Columbia “was formative in how I think about the South and history,” says Glymph. While Kennedy’s family left Columbia for Washington DC during his childhood, he is deeply rooted in his family’s rich history in the Waverly community.
The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
This event is co-presented by Historic Columbia, University of South Carolina's History Center, Institute for Southern Studies, and Humanities Collaborative.
