“Educating the Next Generation of Global Citizens” is the theme of the sixth annual Summer Forum sponsored by the World Affairs Council of Hilton Head. The sessions are open to the public at the Hilton Head Library Community Room and are free of charge.
The Forum is from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM. Reservations are not required, but seating is limited.
One hundred years ago, Progressives advocated for restrictions on the use of young children in industries and commercial ventures. Some changes were legislated yet child labor remains a contemporary issue in many countries today. Because child labor is a theme within the Young Adult selection, In the Sea There are Crocodiles, we decided to explore the history of child labor here in the Beaufort District. Come learn about local industries that used children as a significant portion of their labor force well into the 1930s.
