“Rice Culture in South Carolina, Past and Present"
Presented by Amanda McNulty, Producer/Host of SCETV’s “Making It Grow”
Friday, Feb. 24, Noon-1 p.m.
Rice culture shaped the society and health of freed and enslaved South Carolinians. Today, breeding has brought back the original "Carolina Gold" rice which at one time gave SC the highest per capita income in the world; further crosses have introduced even more choices based on the historic standouts.
The lecture will be held both in person and via Zoom.
