African Americans, both free and enslaved, served in the American and British armies as armed troops and as laborers known as "pioneers." In many places, slaves were offered freedom if they agreed to fight for the British. Large numbers of slaves deserted their plantations, particularly in the Lowcountry. But as far as the backcountry is concerned, in the case of the Bratton's slave Watt, some felt that their loyalty was to the family who owned them.

This ETV Teacher Recertification course, which was developed by ETV Education and approved by the SDE Office of Educator Services for 20 renewal credits, is recommended for teachers of all grade levels. The course is built on video resources developed by SCETV in partnership with the SC Department of Education to support arts educators, school guidance and career specialist professionals as well as regular classroom teachers. It can be valuable to all educators who seek to know more about the arts and career possibilities in arts fields in order to share this knowledge with their students as they help guide them in their focus of studies and prepare them for higher education or entering the world of work.
The video programs in the course look at the history of arts education in South Carolina in terms of legislation, initiatives and lessons learned; provide discussions with a variety of arts professionals who address 21st century skills as they relate what they do in their jobs day to day; give an in-depth look at several of these professionals with outstanding and interesting careers; and take us behind-the-scenes to learn about the lives and work of some famous artists with South Carolina connections.
Three programs coordinated and hosted by Scot Hockman, former SDE Education Associate for the Visual and Performing Arts, entitled History of Arts Education in S.C., are part of The Arts and Career Connections, Series I course.
