This webinar features interviews with award-winning South Carolina civil rights era photographer Cecil Williams and award-winning South Carolina artist and professor Leo Twiggs. The panelists discuss the legacy of their work for civil rights and African American education. This webinar comes as the nation and world witnesses the senseless murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and several others, and as the nation approaches the fifth anniversary of the murder of nine black parishioners in Charleston, SC. This webinar is co-sponsored by Center for the Education and Equity of African American Students (CEEAAS), and the Center for Civil Rights History and Research.
