Here’s a quick look at some historic happenings in Columbia this week:
Tuesday, February 12, 5:30-7 p.m.: Architecture of Segregation lecture: This lecture will be on the “Architecture of Segregation,” in which we explores the importance of sites that played a role in the physical separation of blacks and whites and the importance of preserving these tangible links to a dark chapter in our national history so that current and future generations will not forget about what life was like before the Civil Rights movement.
This event is free and open to the public. The lecture will take place at the Richland Library's Walker Local History Room at 1431 Assembly St.
