About This Show
December marked the 150th anniversary of South Carolina’s secession from the United States and the beginning of the American Civil War. Many events across the state will commemorate the anniversary, and many will explore the history and causes of the war. The SC African American Heritage Commission plans to participate in a manner that will help present a complete picture of a history that is shared by both blacks and whites.
Joining Dr. Edgar to talk about the Commission’s plans and the wider implication of the events of 1865 are Dr. Abel Bartley of Clemson University, and Joseph McGill from the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Southern Regional Office.
