Voices & Votes History Symposium

July 23 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Our signature event will be a lively symposium on the dramatic events and jagged history of voting rights in South Carolina and Aiken County. Selected questions for the speakers will be taken from the audience. The discussion will involve three South Carolina luminaries: Dr. Walter Edgar and Dr. Bobby Donaldson of Columbia, along with Aiken’s own Dr. Tom Mack serving as moderator.

Part of the Voices and Votes: Democracy in America traveling exhibit of the Smithsonian Institution, on display at the Aiken County Historical Museum from July 23 through September 3, 2022.‚Äč In anticipation of this honor, a Program Committee has worked with partners to assemble 15 different events from late February to early September, to be held free of charge in venues across the community. The exhibit and all programs offer wide-ranging reflections on the storied history of voting rights in America, many with a local focus.
