Black High School Activism

Lecture by: Dr. Jon Hale

Location: Stern Student Center Ballroom at 5:30pm

Background: In April 2014, the College of Charleston will host a series of events entitled, “From Equality to Quality: Commemorating the Brown v. Board of Education (1954) decision.” The “From Equality to Quality” commemoration series is broken into three events— two public forums and one local history project at Burke High School. These events are intended to inform attendees about the history of South Carolina in the monumental Brown decision as well as generate discussion about the status of quality education today. Understanding the history of the movement is central to these commemorative events, specifically hearing from those involved in the history.
