About the Exhibit

Remembering Individuals, Remembering Communities interprets and maps the life and work of Septima Poinsette Clark (1898-1987), to provide insights into her experiences as an African American civil rights educator, activist, and native of Charleston, South Carolina. Highlighting this history not only reveals the significance of the black freedom struggle in Charleston, it also challenges ongoing race, class, and gender divisions throughout the city’s public history landscape. Published February 2017.
