Seabrookers John Reynolds and Mary Whyte are hosting “The Sounds of Motown2” on Friday, February 21, 2020, at 6:00 pm, at the Seabrook Island Club House. With live music and dancing, the evening should be a great time for a great cause, SCOPE50.
Tickets are $75 and can be ordered from John Reynolds at JohnR99773@aol.com or 843-768-0434. You can also go to the SCOPE50 website (SCOPE50.org) for more information and to purchase tickets. This is an all-island event open to everyone.
One of SCOPE50’s goals is to implement an Oral History Project designed to collect the personal accounts of the Summer Community Organization and Political Education (SCOPE) project volunteers who spent the summer of 1965 traveling throughout the south working for voting rights for all citizens, under the direction of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. These volunteers are aging so it is important the oral histories be collected now before these pieces of history are lost forever. These histories will then be made available to educators, students, voting rights organizations and archives.
John Reynolds and his history with the Civil Rights Movement make a compelling story.
