Damn, I have to go visit the Charleston, SC Chief of Police on Thursday. All because I said I want to spend a night in the Old Charleston Jail to engage the participants in a discussion about the recidivism rate of African Americans in the prison system. I hope that you will be able to join us on Sunday, March 3rd.
The New England Society of Charleston was organized at the Carolina Coffee House (corner of Tradd Street & Bedon’s Alley.) New England merchants were coming to Charleston to purchase cotton for their mills and the coffee house became their meeting place for business and entertainment.
