The South Carolina African American Heritage Commission recently presented its inaugural “Preserving our Places in History Legislator of the Year” award to Sen. Vincent Sheheen (left). Sheheen was instrumental in securing funding in fiscal year 2016-17 for the Commission’s heritage tourism project, which culminated in the development of the Green Book of South Carolina, the state’s first online travel guide to African American historic places in South Carolina. The Green Book lists more than 300 sites associated with African American history including markers, districts, churches, schools, historic sites, cemeteries, museums and cultural attractions. Presenting the award were Jannie Harriot, vice chairperson of the Commission (left), and Strauss Moore Shiple of the Olde English District Tourism Commission and an ex-officio member of the Commission.
