SC students have chance to study interviewing
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Some living civil rights icons are sharing their stories with South Carolina high school students during a summit in Columbia.
South Carolina Educational Television says its Civil Rights and Social Justice Youth Media Summit gets under way Friday.
During the three-day meeting, ETV says students will get to learn about recording interviews by recording accounts from people like Judge Ernest A. Finney Jr., the first black justice appointed to South Carolina's Supreme Court. Other participants include Henri Monteith Treadwell, who was one of three students who desegregated the University of South Carolina in 1963.
Students will come from several schools in Columbia and Summerton. They'll also get help from students from Benedict College.
The students will reconvene at ETV in April to screen their work.
