Black History Month - The Legacy of the 1963 Lakeview High School South Carolina State Championship Football Team, Part 1

Episode 98,   Feb 21, 07:28 PM

This is the story of how a small segregated high school in South Carolina won a state championship in 1963, despite playing on a field known as “the dust bowl.”

This is also the story of a group of men who partnered to save the legacy of that team, and to renovate the “dust bowl.”

The high school itself has been transformed into a thriving community center, and today I have the privilege of talking with some of the people who made it all possible.

With us today are 1963 team captain Bennie Sulton, Reverend Charles Jackson, a former student and chaplain at Lakeview High School, and Keller Kissam, President of Dominion Energy South Carolina.
