Liberia, South Carolina:
An African American Appalachian Community
A lecture by Dr. John M. Coggeshall, Professor of Anthropology, Clemson University.
This talk presents the oral history of an African-American community in upper Pickens and Greenville counties. Descendants of local freed slaves, the Liberia Community has struggled for over a century to persevere in White-dominated Upstate South Carolina. The community’s struggles also reflect larger theoretical and historical issues. Audience questions are welcomed.
Free and open to the public.
