Virtual Book Event - A Conversation with Claudia Smith Brinson and Tom Gaither  
,
Venue: Virtual
Join a virtual conversation between Claudia Smith Brinson, author of “Stories of Struggle: The Clash over Civil Rights in South Carolina,” and Friendship Nine organizer Tom Gaither, moderated by Professor Adolphus Belk, Jr. In “Stories of Struggle,” Brinson distills decades of research, including more than 150 interviews with the men and women who spearheaded the civil rights struggle in South Carolina. Her book focuses on the incredible courage of African American activists who dared take on the majority Jim Crow culture of the 1960s. These heart-breaking, inspiring stories contradict the myth that South Carolina reacted to the civil rights movement more humanely than other Southern states.

Small Museum Association 37th Annual Conference will be Virtual!  
Dover, Delaware
Venue: Virtual
Out of an abundance of caution and an awareness that small museums need resources and want to share their experiences with others sooner than February, we have decided that rather than hold our beloved Small Museum Association Conference in person this year, we will be hosting a series of mini conferences in the form of interactive webinars. These will be about an hour long with time for questions, but if the discussion is lively, we can keep it going! ///// The theme for this year comes as no surprise: we want to talk about how small museum have or can respond to crisis with particular focus on the current health situation and on Black Lives Matter. However, a crisis may also be a flooded collections room, massive data loss, etc. We may even look to what museums have done in crises during decades past for inspiration or have a creative conversation about future crises and how to best to prepare. And how have museums preserved the memory of crises in the past? Whose narratives are presented and what objects are preserved? How should museums be recording this moment in history? ////// Our webinar series can be found on our website.
