In 2018 when the College announced the formation of the Center for the Study of Slavery in Charleston, this op-ed was published reflecting on the need for all Charlestonians to understand our shared past, which is profoundly shaped by slavery.  The author, Julia Eichelberger, an English professor at the College, directs the program in Southern Studies and serves on CSSC’s Executive Board.Screenshot of op-ed in online Post & Courier
