Attend former Charleston mayor Joe Riley’s course on International African American Museum

This spring Citadel professor and former Charleston mayor Joeseph P. Riley, Jr. is teaching a new course that is open to the public. The course is titled “Why and How: The Making of the International African American Museum”. The class takes place on Tuesdays from 3:30-5pm in various locations and features different guest speakers.

The course aims to be as much a study of history learned through the culmination of decades of work by church historians, genealogists, and storytellers as it is a business case study of what goes into taking on a major public project of this kind.

See full course schedule here.
