Meet William Carson,  Author of the new book Emancipation Procrastination
William Carson Picture

William Carson grew up on a cotton farm in Summerton, South Carolina, and witnessed the onset of the first lawsuit to desegregate schools in the South.  He attended Clemson University and served as an officer in the U.S. Army.  He moved to Hilton Head Island in 1964, and his professional career here introduced him to the Gullah people and their culture.

He will share his experiences that led to this story of a Gullah family who moved to Philadelphia for a better life.

Sunday, March 23, 2014; 2:00 pm at the Heritage LibraryLight refreshments will be served.  Please call the library to reserve your seat.
