The Green Book of South Carolina
January 2, 2019
The Camden Archives and Museum and the African American Cultural Center of Camden announce the second in the lecture series on African American culture in Camden and Kershaw County. Entitled “Let’s Talk About…” the upcoming topic will be The Green Book of South Carolina, the on-line guide to African American cultural sites in our state.
Guest lecturer will be the Corporate Communications Director of the South Carolina Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department, Dawn Dawson-House. Dawson-House is a member of the SC African American Heritage Commission, creators of The Green Book of SC which features more than 300 African American Cultural destinations across the state.
According to Dawson-House, 81 years ago, a travel guide was published for African-Americans listing safe harbors and welcoming establishments across the United States. It was known as The Green Book. Now it has been published again, but this time for travelers in our state as the first mobile web travel guide to African American cultural sites across South Carolina.
Admission is free and the public is invited to attend Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 1:30 until 3 at the Robert Mills Court House, 607 Broad Street, Camden, SC. The program will include the presentation and a question and answer session. Light refreshments will be served afterward.
