12janalldayLook! Forward Photography Exhibition

Event Details

The Look! Forward Photography exhibit showcases the beauty and strength of children, teens and young adults who are living rich, full lives despite their disability or special healthcare need.

This year, thanks to the generosity of 39 South Carolina photographers, the exhibit featured 49 children, teens and adults. Family Connection developed the LOOK! project in response to often heard comments from the families we serve. “I wish that the world would really see my child and not just their disability!”

Family Connection has a long history of  serving families of children with disabilities and special healthcare needs. In 2015, we became the Parent Training and Information Center for South Carolina. There is a Center in every state to provide information and training to parents of those with disabilities, ages birth through 26.

22feb1:30 pmHonoring the WorkIn celebration of Black History Month and the Work of Jonathan Green

Event Details

Dr. Stephanie Y. Mitchem’s lecture honors the work of black southerners from Jim Crow-era to today. This talk connects to the work seen in “Sharing the Chores: Works on Paper by Jonathan Green,” currently on view at the Morris Center.

Discussions of the work of black folk often miss the ingenuity and determination achieved as well as its absolute necessity for the construction of the United States. Particularly, the work of black folks in South Carolina should be honored for the difficulties faced with creativity, faith, and honor. This talk will focus on the historical work of black Americans, considering how some aspects continue to the present day.

Dr. Stephanie Y. Mitchem, professor of religious studies at the University of South Carolina, teaches contemporary theology and women’s studies, emphasizing the experiences and perspectives of black women. Her current research focuses on the intersections of social class, gender constructions, racism, and religions, ideas which Cox also examines through her art.

28feb6:00 pmThe Lost Hundred Years In The History of South Carolina – The Story of Santa ElenaDiscover Historical Connections at the Morris Center

Event Details

Join us for a talk with Bill Davies that examines what happened between to “discovery” of America by Columbus in 1492 and the first permanent English settlement at Jamestown in 1607. Santa Elena was the first capital of a European colony in the present day footprint of the United States, but its history is not taught in schools – and it is right down the road. Today the site of Santa Elena is one of the most pristine archaeological research opportunities in America. All South Carolinians, indeed all citizens of the United States, need to know about that hundred years as it is a part of our history which shaped us into the country we are today.
