CNN Commentator Bakari Sellers will be coming to SPC for Social and Behavioral Sciences Week. He will be participating in 2 forums! His talks will be titled Making Democracy Work- The State of Our Politics. Bakari Sellers represented the 90th district of the lower house of the South Carolina state legislature from 2006 to 2014. He accomplished this feat in dramatic fashion given that he was just 22 years old when he defeated a longtime incumbent. Thus, he became the youngest representative in the South Carolina state legislature. As someone who is just 34 years old and is a millennial with additional policy aspirations, this will be a great opportunity for our students to engage with a dynamic and groundbreaking speaker.
The 1st event is Student-only (free as well) and will be held at American Stage from 12:00 to 1:30 pm at the DT Campus on October 10th.
