Charron to discuss biography on noted S. C. civil rights activist Septima Clark
at public book talk

Charron PhotoKatherine Mellen Charron, author and associate professor of history at North Carolina State University, will give a talk on her book, "Freedom's Teacher: The Life of Septima Clark," at the main branch of the Richland Library at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 22, 2013. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Charron's acclaimed biography tells the story of Septima Clark, a South Carolina public school teacher who, in the mid-1950s, developed a citizenship training program that enabled thousands of African Americans to register to vote. Clark played a crucial role in making education a cornerstone of the 20th-century freedom struggle. Charron's book sheds light on southern black women's activism in national, state and judicial politics, from the Progressive Era to the civil rights movement and beyond.

Charron comes to Columbia as the keynote speaker for the Media and Civil Rights History Symposium, a biennial conference hosted by the School of Journalism and Mass Communications in the College of Mass Communications and Information Studies at the University of South Carolina. The conference is supported by the university's Department of History, The History Center, and the African American Studies Program.
