Black History Two African Americans have resolutions pending at the General Assembly in Columbia, South Carolina. The first is to establish "A Eartha kitt Day in South Carolina",and the other is to name US Highway 301 from Interstate 26 to Homestead Road to honor the late political figure Thomas moss.Both South Carolinians have contributed greatly to South carolina and beyond.

Honorable Matthew J. Perry Jr. spoke of the plight of young African-American as keynote speaker for "Civil Rights Remembrance Day" in Orangeburg, South Carolina on May,4th 1997 at Trinity United Methodist Church.He spoke of this great concern just before he passed away, days before his 90th birthday.Judge Perry was still active on the bench at the federal courthouse that bears his name. We must continue the legacy of Hon.Matthew J. Perry Jr. to fight for equal rights for all people, and especially our young African_American males.

I hope that my story could be told,as to what it was like to grow up in a family of thirteen children in the segregated south. Today twelve of us are in the land of the living! We are bless, but having some problems understanding how bless we are. I do not know if growing up in segregation had its advantage or disadvantage on our lives,and how ? This is one to yet be reckoned with. Rosa Mavins Bogar I am a native of Orangeburg, South Carolina. If there is an interest on our stories "A dozen of us Now" brown eggs Please contact me.Thanks,Rosa Bogar

I have been sharing for years about a marker that is related with slavery and the Civil War.This marker has the date 1861 on it.This marker is in the black community where I grew up.This community is on the outskirt of the City of Orangeburg,South Carolina.I often wondered if any homes should have been built on this land.I played on this marker growing up ,it is just across the street from where my grandmother lived. This community is still all Black and seemed to be more divided by class than race.Let us learn more about this marker and give some kind of credit to me for sharing this important history! Thanks, Rosa Bogar
