Phone: 843-3653

As the college community considers whether to rename Palmer Hall, we can benefit by listening to the insights of Presbyterians who have been engaged with assessing the legacy of 19th- and 20th-century church leaders who supported slavery, segregation, and white supremacy.

Panel members include representatives from three major branches of Presbyterianism, each of which has dealt with its past in its own way.

Please join us as the college broadens the conversation on this important issue.
