We had an eventful trip to Orangeburg on Sept. 24th A great team of problem solvers ( we had lots of problems to solve)
We even made the news! The WLTX Street Squad came to visit.https://www.wltx.com/video/news/local/usc-school-of-law-program-provides-free-legal-services-across-the-state/101-709f8f21-09e1-464b-8186-1c64c45d780b
Yes, I need a haircut, no comments! But the words of the clients made everything worthwhile.
After a long day of helping people with legal issues the team took time out to visit the Cecil Williams SC Civil Rights Museum. Mr. Williams, 81, a noted SC photographer documented many of SC’s leading civil rights moments including the Briggs V. Elliott case and the Orangeburg Massacre. His museum is loaded with important first hand photos and memorabilia highlighting many important moments in SC’s civil rights struggle. You may know the history but nothing can beat hearing from the people involved. A picture is worth a thousand words. Information about the Cecil Williams SC Civil Rights Museum and be found online. Worth a stop!
So much about the Fall semester will be new. For the Class of 2024 it is all a mystery and even for some in the Class of 2023 being in the building will feel strange. But for those of us who have been here all along we say:
We have missed you and are looking forward to an engaging pro bono experience with limited ZOOM meetings!
