A Few People Who Will Make You Smile

An email came across my desk last week that announces The Citadel’s new Dept. of Leadership Studies and M.S. Degree in Leadership. When I was coming through, The Citadel was not an option for most Black high school graduates, although a C.A. Brown grad, Charles Foster, was its first Black cadet.

I’m proud that Army Lt. Col. Santel H. Powell, a kid right off the Cooper Street block, is among the ranks of those who followed. Guys like Charleston dentist Larry Ferguson and White House staffer Clay Middleton also are among the unsung heroes from The Citadel.

S.C. Rep. Seth Whipper calls for suspension, firing of Academic Magnet coach

Attorney Dwayne Green, who is representing Walpole, said Thursday afternoon that Walpole did not know about the "negative connotations" of his team's ritual of smashing watermelons. Watermelons are tied to racial stereotypes that were prevalent after the Civil War that, according to Citadel history professor Marcus Cox, perpetuated the idea that African-Americans were simple-minded and inferior.
