Former Governor McNair to attend book signing at CCU

Former Governor Robert McNair and author Philip G. Grose will talk about and autograph copies of Grose's recent book, "South Carolina at the Brink: Robert McNair and the Politics of Civil Rights," Thursday, April 12 from 3 to 4 p.m. in the boardroom of the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration at Coastal Carolina University. The event is free and open to the public.

"During the height of the civil rights movements, Robert McNair faced the task of leading the state through the dismantling of its pervasive 'Jim Crow' culture," says Grose, a professor of Southern history at the University of South Carolina. "Governor McNair navigated the state into a more pragmatic, inclusive and prosperous era from 1965 to 1971."

Grose, a veteran journalist, served on the staffs of South Carolina governors Robert McNair and John West. He is a senior consultant to the Executive Institute of the state's Budget and Control Board and a research fellow at the Institute for Southern Studies at the University of South Carolina. Grose is a graduate of Washington and Lee University.
