Historian speaks for a second day

February 8, 2013

At two Seneca schools this morning, Rebekah Dobrasko of the S.C. State Historic Preservation Office looks forward to reciting South Carolina history from 50 years ago, when the state was forced to desegregate its public schools. Dobrasko’s audience will be grades three through five at Blue Ridge Elementary and grade five at Northside. She spent yesterday at Seneca Middle School and as the featured speaker for the city’s Black History luncheon. There, Dobrasko told an audience of more than 100 people of South Carolina’s intent to keep the races separate. She drove home the point that separate but equal schools were a fallacy, as most education money was spent on white schools.
