About the Series

The Human Library Series at the Charleston County Public Library started in September, 2018, with four planned discussions with members of groups who have experienced prejudice and stigma: a refugee, transgender people, members of law enforcement, and members of the Gullah Geechee community. Since the launch, members of the CCPL staff have worked behind the scenes to extend the series into 2019 and at other branches. Six more Human Library sessions are planned for the first half of the year at Main Library. 

Interested members of the community are invited to gather in a safe space and converse with individuals who have been exposed to prejudice or stigma. Join us to combat intolerance by engaging in open, honest and respectful dialogue. 

If you have an idea for a Human Library speaker or are interested in becoming a speaker at one of our upcoming Human Library Series events, fill out this form.
