SCOPE50 is hosting “The Sounds of Motown 3” on Thursday, October 19, 2023, at 6:00 pm, at the Seabrook Island Club. With live music, food and dancing, the evening should be a great time for a great cause. This is an all-island event open to everyone.
Tickets are $75 and there will be a cash bar. Tickets can be ordered from John Reynolds at JohnR99773@aol.com or 401-573-6008. You can also go to the SCOPE50 website for more information and to purchase tickets.
One of SCOPE50’s goals is to continue its 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. The histories will be made available to educators, students, voting rights organizations and archives. At a reunion of these volunteers in 2015 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the SCOPE project, it was decided to form a non-profit organization to continue to work on voter registration. Since 2024 is a presidential election year, SCOPE50 will be working around the country registering people to vote.
