Brent Morris, Associate Professor of History and Chair of the Humanities Department, at USC Beaufort, examines the unique history of African Americans in South Carolina. It is a history that is recorded in documents. And Morris brings together a wide variety of annotated primary-source documents to highlight the significant people, events, social and political movements, and ideas that have shaped black life in South Carolina and beyond. - (Originally broadcast 07/14/17) - News and Music Stations: Fri, Nov 20, 12 pm; Sat, Nov 21, 7 am News & Talk Stations: Fri, Nov 20, 12 pm; Sun, Nov 22, 4 pm
