An evening to remember The Orangeburg Massacre, the deadly shooting of student protestors by Highway Patrol officers at South Carolina State University in 1968. SCARRED JUSTICE: The Orangeburg Massacre 1968 tells the story of South Carolina’s 1968 ‘Orangeburg Massacre,’ an incident often termed ‘the Kent State of the South.’ The film presents a chilling story about abuse of power during a period of tumultuous social upheaval, and the veil of secrecy that shrouds the event to this day.

The film will be followed by a conversation with filmmaker/activist Judy Richardson; journalist and political commentator Eugene Robinson; author Jack Bass; photographer Cecil Williams, educator and veteran civil rights activist, Dr. Cleveland Sellers.

This conversation will be moderated by Mignon Clyburn, Commissioner, FCC.
