Clemson University

Emeritus College Online Seminar with Dr. Roy Jones

July 22 (Wednesday) 10:00am – 11:30am, Online Presentation: Call Me MiSTER: A Historical Perspective on the Educational Disenfranchisement of Black People in South Carolina with Dr. Roy Jones, Provost Distinguished Professor:  The presentation will briefly frame the historic context of the Call Me MiSTER program within the backdrop of early and contemporary law and policies designed to prohibit the educational development and advancement of Black children. Dr. Jones believes strongly that the Call Me MiSTER program was ‘prayed up’ by the Black elders, who struggled, sacrificed and died to envision ‘a better life’ for their future offspring. The presentation will connect the current racial strife in our nation with this historic view.
