It is proper to share Truth! "I always do because it can not be erased.The truth is there are many stories of the black experience and the now historic Hotel Eutaw,for example as told to me by my dear friend Orangeburg native John Williams a musician of the renowned Count Basie Orchestra. These stories need to be gathered for a rich history of the city,s legacy. I am willing to help with this challenge! [email protected] Thanks

I honored Dr. Blackwell at Trinity Church for her heroism in civil rughts in Orangeburg.Dr. Blackwell was consider the Rosa Parks of Orangeburg Movement.Learn more about her life and legacy.The Times and Democrat covered the Civil Rights Memembrance Day commemorations,that speaks pf Dr. Blackwell."In Spirit,In Flesh, In Remembrance" May 5th 1997 and Churning Back the Hands of Time May 12th 2003. I am the visionary of CRRD Rosa Mavins Bogar Rest in Peace DR. Blackwell you taught us how to live a better life, with yours. A-shaa

Black History Two African Americans of South Carolina have resolutions pending at the General Assembly at Columbia. the first is to establish "A Eartha Kitt Day in South Carolina". the other is to name U.S.Highway301 from Interstate 26 to Homestead Road to honor the late political figure Thomas Moss. Both South Carolinians have contributed greatly to South Carilona and beyond.One wishes that the resolutions are confirmed. I am a native of Orangeburg, South carolina. Rosa Mavins Bogar

Black History- I am most proud that such icons of the Orangeburg Civil Rights Movement will be remembered through my papers at the Schomburg Center for Research on Black Culture Those like Dr. Gloria Rackley Blackwell, Dr. Geneva H. Southall who was my rock as I worked on bringing Civil Rights Remembrance Day from a dream to a reality. I am also indebted to the late Mayor of Orangeburg, S.C. Martin C.Cheatham,who proclamed "CRRD" on May 4,9197.The Schomburg Center is the largest repository of materical on people of African decent in the world.This is a great honor to pay homage to these great African Americans I am a native of Orangeburg,South carolina
