Slavery to Civil Rights in Charleston – Author Talk

Local authors Ruth Miller and Alec Cooley will share stories about people and events from African-American history in Charleston, drawn from their recently published walking tour guidebook, Slavery to Civil Rights. The talk will cover both well known topics including Gadsden’s Wharf, the 1969 Hospital Strike and Jenkins Orphanage Band, as well as introduce the audience to lesser known topics such as the 1919 Charleston race riot and early civil rights leader, Louis Gregory.  The talk will be followed by a book signing.
