Join us for Speaker @ the Center on Thursday, November 3, 2016. We'll hear from John M. Sherrer, III, who will discuss his book, Remembering Columbia published by Arcadia. Columbia, South Carolina, is very much a tale of two cities. Founded as a political compromise, forged by an economy shackled by slavery, and physically vanquished by fire, the Palmetto States second capital became a proving ground for a new society less than a century after its establishment. During the course of the next 100 years, Columbians new and old, black and white, rich and poorwould physically transform their city in ways that reflected their needs, aspirations, fears, and wherewithal.
All programs take place from noon to 1:00 p.m. at the South Carolina State Library, 1500 Senate Street, Columbia.
