Black History in Clarendon County and South Carolina

The Times and Democrat Newspaper in Orangeburg, S.C., previously published an excellent series of articles on the chronology of Black History in South Carolina. The author of the series, Richard Reid, is president of the Orangeburg Historical and Genealogical Society.

The series of articles are about people, events, places, and the daily lives of Black Americans that have lived within the state of South Carolina since 1670. The four part chronology below makes for interesting reading. Check it out!

In addition to that series of articles on Black Americans in South Carolina, be sure to visit the Black History page on the Historic Clarendon County web site. If you have additional information or links to other sources that ought to be included on that site, please share them with us.
