Slavery to Civil Rights in Charleston
Ruth Miller, well-known Charleston tour guide, author, and PBK member, unfolded the often forgotten history of African American Charleston at a Zoom meeting on February 22, 2021 attended by 25-30 members and friends. Richly illustrated, Ruth's talk emphasized how vital to Charleston history the labors of persons of African descent have been. She also highlighted the signal role of Charleston's African Americans in moves for equality and justice. Those interested in pursuing these issues in greater depth will find Ruth's latest book, co-authored with Alec Cooley, of interest: Slavery to Civil Rights: A Walking Tour of African-American Charleston.
Our entire winter meeting will be available for review from The Citadel Online for 30 days. Hit the link from the figure below. And note that Ruth's talk starts about minute 14:00.
