Lines of Scrimmage:  A Story of Football, Race, and Redemption

Scott Pleasant, Director, Writing center, Coastal Carolina University

Date and Time:  Wednesday, September 30 at 3 p.m.

Location:  Caroline Marshall Draughon Auditorium, Ground Floor, Ralph Brown Draughon Library

In 1989, Conway, South Carolina High School coach Chuck Jordan (who is white) benched returning starter Carlos Hunt (who is black) in favor of Mickey Wilson, an inexperienced white player.  Thirty-one of the team's thirty-seven black players boycotted the team in protest.  The season-long strike severed the town along racial lines, as it became clear that the incident was about much more than football.  While the 1989 season is long over, the story reverberates today as Chuck Jordan is still coaching at Conway High and he is still without that state championship.   Meanwhile, Mickey Wilson is now coaching Conway's fiercest rival, the Myrtle Beach Seahawks.

Co-sponsored by:  The Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts and Humanities, and the Auburn University Libraries.
