Museum Matinee: The Education of Harvey Gantt
The 2019 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with The Education of Harvey Gantt, part of the Carolina Stories Series by SCETV. 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 to the public and will be shown February 20 at 1 p.m.
