Tuesday, January 23, 2024

BEAUFORT – Beaufort County School District (BCSD), Technical College of the Lowcountry (TCL),  University of South Carolina Beaufort (USCB), and Penn Center have collaborated to host “Untold Stories, Leading the Way Through Resilience,” an African American history education conference with a focus on Beaufort County’s rich and diverse history. The conference is open to anyone desiring an immersive learning experience about African American history specific to Beaufort County.


This 3rd annual African American History Education conference promises a robust series of activities and educational sessions for attendees. The three-day immersive experience (Feb. 15-17) includes live music and dance, art, cuisine, and in-depth presentations and panel discussions from local and nationally renowned artists, authors, educators, clergy, living legends, and historians.


“We had such a positive response to the last two years’ programming that we knew we needed to do this again,” said conference organizer BCSD Officer of Academic Initiatives, Dr. N’kia Campbell. “Attendees will gain even more perspective and insight about the Lowcountry through the many untold stories shared.”


On Thursday, Feb. 15, attendees will have a choice of seven historical tours. Friday’s activities and sessions will be at TCL while Saturday’s conference events will be at Robert Smalls Leadership Academy in the morning with afternoon sessions at USCB’s historical campus located in Beaufort.

Interested persons can pre-register for the conference online on a first-come, first serve basis. Community members can register per day ($25 for Friday or Saturday, and Thursday is free).
