USCB Center for the Arts to host Meltdown in Dixie

There will be discussion after Oct. 3 screening of documentary film

From staff reports

A screening and discussion of the documentary film Meltdown in Dixie will be hosted at 6 p.m., Monday Oct. 3, at USCB Center for the Arts. The film, directed by Emily Howard, follows the personal, community and, legal, challenges that erupt in Orangeburg, S.C., between the Sons of Confederate Veterans and an ice cream shop owner forced to fly the Confederate flag in his parking lot.

The event, which is this season’s first in the Center’s Engage series of programs, is being hosted in partnership with The Center for Creative Partnerships and S.C. Humanities.

The audience discussion will be moderated by Christopher Thompson. He will be joined by John McCardell and Michael Allen, who will offer insight and context about the larger role that flags, monuments, and other symbols have in shaping the complexities and nuances of our history and present day.

This program is free and open to everyone, as are all programs in the Engage series.
