Event Details

Civil Rights History in Greenville
Featuring Dr. Courtney Tollison
Furman University
 
Join Greenville Forward for it's new Progression Series that seeks to inform and educate Greenville citizens on issues and events happening in Greenville. 
 
Local historian and Furman University professor, Dr. Courtney Tollison, will discuss the history of civil rights in Greenville. As we enter the 50th year of the landmark case, Peterson v. Greenville, we should take the opportunity to glance back at our past and learn from our history.  As segregation gripped the South, where did Greenville, SC stand?  How did we, as a community, address the needs and rights of all our neighbors?  What impact did the civil rights struggle have on our community?
 
Progression is a new series at Greenville Forward that provides an opportunity for Greenvillians to learn, engage, and discuss topics that help shape our community.  The series fits with the Greenville Forward style of educating the public on important topics in our community and inspires them to engage in lively discussion.  Join us for this new program.
