South Carolina Council for African American Studies
The South Carolina Council for African American Studies is a non-profit grassroots organization, born of legislation passed in 1984 that mandated that all schools must include African and African American history, culture and experiences within the K-12 curriculum. Founded in January 2006, its mission is to promote higher standards for African American studies instruction in all subject core area curricula for the schools of South Carolina. With its primary membership consisting of teachers, the Council is building significant networks for instructors at all levels to share “best practices” and current trends in teaching African American history and culture as a seamless part of American history. SCCAAS seeks to foster greater enthusiasm for the teaching profession in general, building lasting ties and networks of support throughout K–12 and Higher Education institutions.
Since its founding in 2006, South Carolina ETV has partnered with SCCAAS to provide valuable educational resources and programs, which can only be provided through ETV. Additionally, each February, SCCAAS holds its Annual Conference at the ETV facilities, hosting over 150 educators each year.
