We got off to a strong start in January, and it gets even better in February, March and April!
We recognize Black History Month on February 21 with a discussion of the powerful book Ukweli: Searching For Healing Truth. Joining us will be co-editor Herb Frazier and contributor Steve Bailey.
March is Women’s History Month and there’s no shortage of important women in Lowcountry History. DIHS board members Beth Bush and Lee Ann Bain will focus on Septima Poinsette Clark, Gertrude Legendre (Gertie), and Martha Daniell Logan and how they helped shape where we live todqy!
And we’re not fooling around in April either. Flooding is a part of Charleston history and will be even more of a topic in the near future. Our April program will feature author and preservationist Christina Rae Butler discussing that wet future, and her book Lowcountry At High Tide: Flooding, Drainage, and Reclamation in Charleston.
There’s more information on all three programs on our events calendar at https://dihistoricalsociety.com/calendar-of-events/
All of our monthly programs are free and everyone is welcome. That said, membership is vitally important to DIHS’ ability to continue a wide range of local programs affecting schools, local oral history, historical markers and more. Please consider becoming a dues paying member and help advance those efforts. https://dihistoricalsociety.com/membership-4/
