ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – The John C. West Forum on Politics and Policy at Winthrop University will host an April 18 forum on race, featuring U.S. Sen. Tim Scott, U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy and Professor Scott Huffmon.

Organizers hope for an insightful discussion on race in the Palmetto State. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. in the Richardson Ballroom in the DiGiorgio Campus Center.

Sen. Scott of South Carolina is an African-American member of the U.S. Senate. Rep. Gowdy, a fellow Republican from Spartanburg, has been a close ally of Scott since the two were first elected to Congress. Huffmon is a Winthrop political science professor and director of the Social & Behavioral Research Lab which conducts the internationally known Winthrop Poll.

Those unable to attend the April 18 event can watch via Facebook Live at the West Forum’s page (https://www.facebook.com/johnwestforum/).

This is the third and final event of this academic year’s “Palmetto Focus: A Series on the Issues in South Carolina.” The first session in November focused on state education funding through Act 388, while the second dealt with healthcare with the Affordable Care Act.

The West Forum is committed to promoting civic engagement and raising issues important to South Carolinians. 

The Palmetto Focus series is underwritten by Morton & Gettys and Robinson Bradshaw law firms. 

It is a venue for South Carolinians to hear about important issues in South Carolina and to further the conversation about those issues, said West Forum Co-Director Katarina Moyon.
