Dynamic Dialogues Series: Discovering Dave film screening and discussion

Aiken Technical College will kick-off its new guest lecture series, Dynamic Dialogues, on Oct. 26 with a screening of Discovering Dave: Spirit Captured in Clay and discussion with the film’s co-producer George Wingard. The event will begin at 12:45 p.m. in the amphitheater (700 building).

Discovering Dave: Spirit Captured in Clay is a documentary that details the life of David Drake, an enslaved potter in Edgefield, S.C. during the 1800s. The award-winning film has been shown throughout the United States.

Wingard is the program coordinator for the Savannah River Archaeological Research Program, a division of the South Carolina Institute of Archaeology and Anthropology. In addition to researching 18th and 19th century pottery from the Central Savannah River Area, his interests also include the historic towns that were located in the area that is now the Savannah River Site, and the Graniteville mill village.

The Dynamic Dialogues series is a joint effort between the College’s Office of Recruitment and Student Experience and academic leadership to engage students outside of the classroom, said Melissa Johnson, director of the Office of Recruitment and Student Experience.

“Understanding that learning takes place all around us, providing a well-rounded educational experience is a priority in higher education,” she said. “This series was developed to offer an opportunity to showcase subject experts and thought leaders in our area, making students aware of the resources in their own backyards.”

Future lectures will be held in November, February and March on topics such as STEM-related careers, health disparities and women’s history, respectively.

“The goal is to highlight topics that are of academic relevance to our students, that also increase cultural awareness,” said Johnson.

Refreshments will be provided starting at 12:30 p.m. All events in the series are free and open to the public.
