Thorough presentation starts with the African American soldiers returning from WW2 and finding that opportunities are scarce, and segregation is still widely practiced in the state. It goes into the inequality of schools and the lawsuit against Clarendon County Schools that was part of the Brown v. Board of Education case that eventually ended school segregation. It discusses Rosa Parks, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and how their contributions to the movement affected our state. It covers the eventual peaceful integration of public schools in the state, starting with Clemson University and the rights for African Americans that were restored at the end of the movement.
Includes discussion questions at the end of the presentation!
