Book on Georgetown Cemetery provides great starting point for those interested in history

While some may consider an interest in cemeteries a macabre hobby, Sharon Freeman Corey understands the importance of the buried past while also enjoying the tranquil beauty of today. Another addition in the growing collection of Images of America series, “Georgetown County’s Historic Cemeteries” is a photographic essay of gravesites and historic markers found around the third oldest city in South Carolina.

'True South' is a fresh look at 'Eyes on the Prize' � and a reminder of the ongoing civil rights struggle

I first encountered "Eyes on the Prize" in high school, as many children of the '80s did. The stories and images of the civil rights movement made their mark on me: The savage murder of Emmett Till, the courage of marchers who faced down beatings and police dogs, and the dogged persistence (and occasional failing) of Martin Luther King Jr. came to vivid life before my eyes. At the time I assumed this six-hour documentary series was merely the latest look at this recent history. I had no conception of the mountains that were moved to bring all of it to the screen.
