Historians, activists ponder role of black power in the past and today at SC conference- AP

In the city where the first shots were fired in a bloody civil war that freed millions of slaves, historians, activists and ordinary folks will discuss the legacy of black power and what it means today.

The three-day conference opening Thursday at the College of Charleston’s Avery Research Center for African American studies includes appearances by activists from the 1960s such as Cleveland Sellers. It also will feature talks about the movement by noted historians and discussion of what black power means in a nation where a black man sits in the White House.
