Charleston County Public Library presents Abraham the Unstoppable: Black Hero of Colonial S.C.

February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

During the Anglo-Cherokee War of 1759-1761, an enslaved man named Abraham won his freedom from the government of South Carolina by performing a series of deeds that not only displayed remarkable physical endurance and bravery, but also saved many lives.
