Journalist, author, and SCPC donor Jack Bass will be recognized on January 27, 2012, by the South Carolina African American Heritage Commission.
At their annual meeting, Bass will be presented with their Lifetime Achievement Award. He was placed in nomination by me, along with Dr. Bill Hine of South Carolina State University. In my letter of nomination, I concluded, “This remarkably productive life has served to shine a bright light on race relations in the South and particularly in Bass’s home state of South Carolina. It seems fitting that the Commission recognize and honor this great South Carolinian.” Cheers to Jack for this well-deserved recognition.
