Like so many other colleges and universities, the College of Charleston has worked to reexamine its role in American history and the role that diverse communities have played in that history. The creation of the Center for the Study of Slavery in Charleston (CSSC) is a part of this effort, which provides a way for faculty, staff, students, and the public to engage with issues of public history, history, education, and social justice. The presenters are archivists and will speak about how information and cultural heritage professionals can take part in challenging conversations about the nature of American history, engage in interpretation and exhibitions that forges emotional and intellectual connections, and how to use records to tell diverse stories.
