VIDEO: Black History Month at Philip Simmons Elementary

Many schools in Berkeley County School District held special programs and events for Black History Month. This video takes a look at the activities at PSE, where the school is named for a blacksmith and artisan deserving recognition as one of the South's most influential African-Americans. The work of Mr. Philip Simmons is visible all over the Charleston area and is also available for viewing at museums all over the world, including the National Museum of American History and the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe.
