Webinars

The Charleston Forum hopes this message finds you adapting well amid all of the changes in circumstances resulting from the pandemic. The Charleston Forum is adapting to how we advance our mission of addressing issues of race and will host online programs in 2020. As discussed below, we will host Congressman Jim Clyburn Saturday, April 25 at 4pm to discuss the impact of the pandemic on our communities. The Charleston Forum will host other discussions on important topics in the coming weeks as we lead up to our annual event in June.

This June, in commemoration for our community members lost at Mother Emanuel five years ago and in recognition of the 350th Anniversary of Charleston's founding, The Charleston Forum will reveal the results of a survey showing the attitudes residents in our tri-county area have about issues of race. The survey concentrates on The Charleston Forum’s principal topics of education, economics, policing and criminal justice, and the future of the past.
