The College of Charleston will be hosting a forum on the 1969 100-day strike at the Charleston Hospital.

The strike was in response to black nurses' aides getting paid less than white professional nurses to perform the same duties. The forum will be held in the Jewish Studies Center at 96 Wentworth Street.

Pop over to The College of Charleston for the story.

The forum will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. tonight, September 10, in the library on the second floor.
