The Pickens-Salley Symposium on Southern Women will be held at the Etherredge Center at USC Aiken on Tuesday, March 25 at 7 p.m.

This event was created to honor the contributions of Southern women and is named after the women who once lived in the Pickens-Salley House now located on campus – Lucy Pickens and Eulalie Salley.

The featured guest at the Symposium will be Dr. Kari Frederickson, a University of Alabama Department of History chair and author of “Cold Water Dixie: Militarization and Modernization in the American South.” Frederickson will discuss the impact of the Savannah River Site developments on women’s lives in the area.

The Symposium is open to the public at no charge. For more information about the Symposium, contact Dr. Deidre Martin at 803-641-3448 or
