Q. How do I access the State of Racial Disparities Report?
The State of Racial Disparities in Charleston County, South Carolina 2000-2015 report can be accessed on the website of the Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture. The report was Commissioned by The College of Charleston’s Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture. Funded by Google.
It was written by Dr. Stacey Patton with recommendations developed by the Race and Social Justice Initiative (RSJI) leadership and staff. RSJI was founded in 2015 following a major grant from Google in response to the tragedy at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church. Since our inception, RSJI has been leading efforts in the Lowcountry to promote public awareness, increase dialogue, and effect long-term systemic change on issues surrounding race and injustice.
