February 12th is rather busy day if you're interested in increasing your knowledge of local history and/or African American genealogy. It's impossible to attend both the book review presentation and the genealogy workshop so you will have to pick the topic (and location) that best suits your needs! Both are free.
2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
BDC Manager, Grace Cordial, leads the discussion of Gullah Statesman: Robert Smalls from Slavery to Congress, 1839-1915 by Edward A. Miller. She will share some of the special collections materials from the BDC with participants during the presentation. No need to register; everyone over age 12 with an interest in our local history is welcome! Free. Call Bratton at (843) 255-6503 or email@example.com for more information.
