Noble: The legacy of Joe Riley
Placeholder Image
“Until the arrival of Joe Riley, Charleston was a sleepwalking, underachieving city with its eyes fastened on a past where its citizens began the most calamitous war in American history. The story of Joe Riley is the story of the renaissance of a city restored to greatness by the dauntless vision of a single man.” --Pat Conroy So begins the program of “A Tribute to Mayor Riley -- 40 Years of Shared Success,” an elaborate dinner presented this week by The Post and Courier with hundreds of Charleston and South Carolina luminaries, including Vice President Joe Biden. Fittingly, the event was to raise funds for the International African American Museum.
