Biographical Imaginations

This unique living-history program portrayed the dignity of teaching while displaying the complexities of education. Drawing upon the power of biography and experimental aspects of historical simulation, “teachers from the past” encouraged students to examine and interpret the past while addressing personal and public issues of today. The program was sponsored by the Kellogg Foundation and the John B. Hawley Trust.

Carolina Shout

Carolina Shout celebrates the important role of teachers in society today. This one-of-a-kind event, a fusion of cultural, musical, aesthetic, and academic experiences, is symbolized through the use of "a shout," the forming of communities that offer opportunities to testify and celebrate.


Maxine Greene Salons

The Maxine Greene Salon has become a biennial, informal gathering sponsored in conjunction with the Maxine Greene Foundation of New York City where teachers, students, and faculty come together to discuss significant works of literature of contemporary interest.


Public Square Program

The Museum stages various gallery talks by visiting scholars and the “So Their Voices Will Never be Forgotten” program, public readings, by students and faculty, from the memoirs of South Carolina educators who fought for civil rights and social justice.


Remembrance of the Orangeburg Massacre

During the first week of February, the Museum screens the documentary film Scarred Justice: The Orangeburg Massacre 1968 and stages a discussion as a memorial to the wounded and slain students of the Feb. 8, 1968 massacre. This public event recognizes the Orangeburg Massacre and examines the contemporary state of affairs of civil rights in South Carolina and the role of educators in their efforts for social justice.
