Documentary Film: The Education of Harvey Gantt
The 2021 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the SCETV film The Education of Harvey Gantt. South Carolina fought the desegregation of its schools longer than any other state, even after the passage of Brown v. Board of Education in 1954. But a determined effort to enforce Brown, spearheaded by the NAACP, prevailed, and in January 1963 the Fourth Circuit Court ordered Clemson College to admit Harvey Gantt, a young African-American man from Charleston. The film is free and will be shown August 4 at 1 p.m.
