From a heart racing basketball game to thoughtful conversations about trailblazers impacting CofC, there’s been a lot to see and do at the College of Charleston these days.

1967 Legacy

Students in the First Year Experience seminar The 1967 Legacy and Beyond (including the 1967 Legacy Scholars) recently shared their research on African American trailblazers, events or organizations that have made an impact at the College of Charleston and the world-at-large. The presentation included visits by alumni Otto German ’73 and Remus Harper ’72. Harper was the first Black student-athlete to play at the College of Charleston and German was the second-ever African-American student-athlete to receive a full basketball scholarship at CofC. (Photos by Heather Moran)
