Major Grants


Mini and Planning Grants

Sponsoring Organization: Clemson University
Project Title: Oconee County and Pickens County African American Heritage Sites Database
Project Director: Rhondda Robinson Thomas
Awarded: $1,996; Cost-share: $1,996
Clemson University will create a database of significant African American heritage sites in Oconee and Pickens Counties. The database will be used as the basis of several public programming opportunities, including an interactive African American Heritage Trail around Clemson’s campus, documentaries created by the International African American Museum, and entries in the South Carolina Green Book project. The database creation will take place from January – May 2022 and includes three parts: identifying heritage sites that already have markers, identifying heritage sites that have been recommended by community partners but don’t have historical markers, and researching new African American heritage sites.
