On this edition of the South Carolina Lede for August 17, 2021, journalist Claudia Smith Brinson joins us to discuss the long and arduous struggle for civil rights in the Palmetto State. In her book Stories of Struggles: The Clash Over Civil Rights in South Carolina (2020, USC Press), Brinson details the lynchings, death threats, and hatred Black South Carolinians endured as well as the courage and compassion of those who risked their lives for equality.
