President's Corner Monthly Newsletter, March 2022

Women History Month

Acclaimed artist Georgia O’Keefe proudly stated that she never let her fear, though ever present, keep her from doing anything she wanted to do in life. Instead, she was fueled by courage. We choose to honor the courage of Ms. O’Keefe, and numerous others like her, as we celebrate Women’s History Month. Tune in for the Georgia O’Keefe: Woman on Paper, airing on March 24 at 8:30 p.m. This story highlights the artist’s career while focusing on the little-known story of O’Keeffe’s time spent as an art instructor at Columbia College.

Immediately following is the debut of Aldwyth: Fully Assembled, a new documentary presented by SCETV that chronicles the journey of a successful South Carolina artist amidst her life’s challenges and obstacles. We will share the stories of many other remarkable women throughout the month. Be sure to watch Princess Diana: Who Do You Think She Was?, along with the four-part docuseries titled The Story of Queen Victoria. We’ll also be re-airing Sisterhood: South Carolina Suffragists in a marathon format on March 17. We are proud to celebrate Women’s History Month, and to introduce new programming options featuring South Carolina women and other notable female influencers, both nationally and internationally. As we focus on these women’s stories and their contributions to our culture and communities, I challenge you to choose courage over fear.
