UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS

BASF and Conservation in Beaufort County

May 17, 3 PM – Presented by Dr. William Bryan, Georgia State College

Reservations: Please call 843-689-6767, ext. 224

basf captain dave smallerIn 1969, an unlikely coalition of African American fishermen, vacationers, environmental activists, and developers joined hands to block the construction of a massive petrochemical plant by the BASF corporation near Hilton Head Island. What began as a local issue quickly became a test case for the growing power of environmentalism nationally, and an indicator of the sweep of the first Earth Day—one of the largest mass demonstrations in American history. This talk will consider how this local environmental battle blossomed into a quintessential national example of the growing concern for the environment in the 1970s, and how such a diverse group of activists were able to bridge their differences to  keislander ad basfep BASF from building in the Lowcountry. William D. Bryan is an historian and educator in Atlanta, Georgia, where he teaches at Georgia State University. Bryan’s work explores topics related to American environmental history, sustainability, economic development, tourism, and the American South. His first book will be published soon.  The Price of Permanence: Nature and Business in the New South (under contract with the University of Georgia Press) explores how nature conservation shaped the American South in the years after the Civil War. Bryan earned a Ph.D. in history from the Pennsylvania State University in 2013.
