‘Critical incident’ videos a boon for transparency or ‘propaganda tool’?
By Sam Spence
South Carolina law gives law enforcement wide discretion in the release of bodycamera video, but Charleston police say a new initiative to release footage will provide the public with valuable information about officer-involved shootings and uses of force. Others say it gives police a chance to control the narrative around violent incidents and raises questions about how agencies will handle events where police act improperly. Charleston Police Department announced its Critical Incident Briefing Project June 9, releasing a 17-minute video to local media that included 911 call audio and body-worn camera footage of police responding to reports of an armed man off North Romney Street around 3 a.m., Dec. 29, 2020. Twenty-eight year old Jason Cooper was shot and killed by police during the incident after he reportedly fired on officers as they arrived on scene. The video starts with a uniformed member of the department’s public information team appearing on screen, providing context for the subsequent footage, captured on body-worn cameras worn by officers during the incident. “This briefing has been completed so that you may have a better understanding about the circumstances that led to this use of force by officers with the Charleston city police department,” Sergeant Elisabeth Wolfson says. Before the footage rolls, Wolfson identifies Cooper as a convicted felon who was barred from possessing firearms. Inspector Michael Gillooly, the department’s compliance and policy manager, helped build the Critical Incident Briefing Project, emulating departments across the
country that have taken a similar approach. The department plans to produce briefing videos in-house for officer-involved shootings “where appropriate,” he said. The point of the videos, Gillooly said, is to disclose as much information as possible about what was known leading up to the sequence of events. “We want to release it in context of, ‘Hey, what did the officers know (from) the 911 call,’ that kind of stuff. So the public has an idea, from the perspective of (police), in context, of why this occurred and what the officers knew when they got on scene, or when they were driving,” Gillooly said. Gillooly said Charleston is the first police department in South Carolina to produce critical incident videos. The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office has released at least nine videos since March 2019. The formula is similar in Greenville County and other agencies across the country: A department representative introduces an incident and walks viewers through relevant information, including details about how body-worn cameras are operated by officers. Charleston’s critical incident videos are being produced by department personnel, according to Gillooly. But In California,

where transparency is mandatory, a cottage industry has sprung up to help agencies keep to the letter of the law. One consulting firm owned by former TV news reporters has contracted with 100 police agencies across the state to produce the video packages, according to The Mercury News in San Jose. One critic called the videos “slick marketing” to justify police actions. The potential for that kind of spin prompts questions from Frank Knaack, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of South Carolina. “The notion that the agency involved in the action is then going to be the one editing and producing the content is highly problematic. The footage should just speak for itself. It should be released,” Knaack said. South Carolina police are required to wear body cameras under a 2015 law passed after bystander video of the shooting death of Walter Scott by former North Charleston officer Michael Slager showed events that differed from the initial police account. But unlike written police accounts, under the law, body-camera videos that document officers’ actions are not subject to South Carolina’s Freedom of Information Act, another factor that gives police the upper hand when releasing information. “This is just an opportunity for CPD to have a new propaganda tool to push out whatever they think is the narrative they want to control,” Knaack said. “Then, that’s the news story that’ll come out.” Feedback on the project has been “supportive and positive” so far, Gillooly said, but going forward, he hopes to be able to CONTINUED ON PAGE 8
Second Sunday on King Street returns in September after an 18-month hiatus. With COVID-19 virus rates and protocols fading, organizer Susan Lucas announced the restart of the monthly promenade that attracts as many as 18,000 people to King Street come fall. “It’s been sorely missed by the downtown retail and dining establishments and the thousands of local and regional visitors,” Lucas said on Monday. During Second Sunday, King Street between Calhoun and Queen streets is turned into a pedestrian-only roadway, with limited crossing access for cars. —Staff

‘Bigger Than Haircuts’
Feidin Santana’s barbershop about ‘restoring community,’ 6 years after filming shooting of Walter Scott Feidin Santana is beginning another chapter of his career as a professional barber less than a mile from where his life changed six years ago. Beyond cutting and styling hair, Santana knows the power of a tight-knit community, and that’s what he hopes to build at Change Up Cuts, now open at 5900 Rivers Ave. “It’s bigger than haircuts,” he told the City Paper Friday. “We’re trying to build bridges, restoring the community together.” Santana, a native of the Dominican Republic, was walking to work at a different barbershop in 2015 when he came upon a North Charleston officer trying to arrest a man and started recording video on his phone. The man being pursued was Walter Scott, who would be gunned down by the officer, Michael Slager. Santana’s eyewitness video contradicted Slager’s initial account of the incident, catapulting the case into the national spotlight. Slager is currently serving a 20-year sentence in prison for violating Scott’s civil rights. “We’re just trying to change the perspective or point of view that people have from 2015 to now.” he said. “It’s a totally new chapter in my life and the lives of people who will be involved with this project.” In addition to his business, Santana is planning to use the space at Change Up Cuts as a community hub for gatherings and meetings. “We’re setting up a platform for people in our community to talk about the issues,” he said, including monthly meetings with state and local representatives
Santana sits inside Change Up Cuts, his new barbershop in North Charleston Wading into politics is something relatively new for Santana, who was elected second vice chair of the Charleston County Democratic Party in April. “It’s all related. We have to be determined and in-action in our beliefs,” he said. Six years after he unwittingly found himself embroiled in a local tragedy, it would be hard to say Santana isn’t determined. Weathering threats and criticism, including hours on the witness stand as part of Slager’s trial, the young father and new U.S. citizen just cut the ribbon on an ambitious new venture. “I have to just understand: I didn’t do anything wrong — that I don’t have to live in fear,” Santana said. “We have to come to this life — to contribute one way or another. And, that’s the only thing I’m doing. I’m just contributing a small part … Hopefully people can understand it.” —Sam Spence
Topgolf eyeing late-2022 opening in North Charleston The Charleston area will get the state’s third Topgolf location, set to open near the North Charleston Coliseum in late 2022, the company announced last week. Construction will begin early next year, according to a press release, near the intersection of Tanger Outlet Boulevard and International Boulevard in the new Uptown at Centre Pointe development. Topgolf typically features a driving range-type setup familiar to many golfers, but with added video game-like features that appeal to golfers and non-golfers alike. The North Charleston location will have
two levels and 72 bays. The location will employ 300, the company said. According to the National Golf Foundation, off-course golf activities at facilities like Topgolf accounted for nearly 33% of total golf participation in 2020, a share that has risen substantially over the past decade. Development of the Uptown complex has been in the works for years, between Centre Pointe Drive and Tanger Outlet Boulevard and will reportedly include filling some remaining wetlands that feed Filbin Creek. —Sam Spence
Amy Sutherland said the $7 million settlement to be paid to her family by the county will not buy her betrayal of others working to prevent future deaths of people like her son, 31-year-old Jamal Sutherland, who died Jan. 5 in custody at Charleston County’s Al Cannon Detention Center. “My platform will be ensuring no other mother has to go through my tragedy,” Amy Sutherland said last week after Charleston County Council unanimously approved the May 25 settlement. “The entire system failed my child,” she said. Jamal Sutherland was arrested Jan. 4 after North Charleston police officers were called to investigate a fight at Palmetto Lowcountry Behavioral Health, a mental health and substance abuse center. He was booked Sutherland into jail on charges of third-degree assault and battery. Video recording released May 13 showed that deputies attempting to take Sutherland to a virtual court appearance on Jan. 5, used pepper spray and repeatedly tased him before he became unresponsive and died. Jamal Sutherland was jailed the night of Jan. 4 and died about 10 a.m. the next morning, but family did not learn about his incarceration and death until late that afternoon, his mother said. To learn more, it took further outcry, she said. In April, various activist groups that individually had been protesting the incident began to combine efforts. Mark Peper, an attorney for the Sutherland family, said Jamal Sutherland’s schizophrenia and bipolar disorder should have precluded him from being held in a non-medical area of the jail and characterized officers’ use of force as unnecessary and excessive. “It’s harsh—the way we treat people who are not as well as we are,” Amy Sutherland said. Amy Sutherland said her mission now is to ensure greater transparency about the incarceration of the mentally ill. “There need to be advocates who can communicate with relatives, and records must be kept meticulously,” she said. “There have got to be a lot of changes,” Amy Sutherland said, “on the part of hospitals, law enforcement and legislators. We have got to ensure that people don’t die today and are forgotten after payment of a settlement.” —Barney Blakeney

A downtown man described as wearing an outfit resembling “either Deadpool or Spiderman” reportedly attempted to steal two cartons of cigarettes from a convenience store. If only the witnesses had brushed up on their Marvel trivia. RUNNERS UP A West Ashley woman was rear-ended by another driver, so she told them they needed to pull over because they had a baby on board. The driver reportedly fixed his headlight, said, “Nobody cares about your baby,” and drove away. A West Ashley woman told police she spotted a man waddling through the woods behind her house with his pants around his ankles. The report said the man wasn’t doing anything out of the ordinary — aside from the pants thing. Police woke up a man who was asleep at the wheel of his car parked on the side of the road, and the conversation was going rather well until the man accidentally dropped two crack pipes onto the floorboard. His response: “Aw, man, not again.”

Amy Sutherland fighting to change a ‘system that failed’ her son
Confusion over single-use plastic rules fueled pandemic litter, advocates say The City of Charleston implemented a ban on single-use plastic products like grocery bags and drinking straws at the beginning of 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic prompted the city to suspend the new ordinance on March 20, 2020, leading to enforcement confusion when the suspension was lifted the following June. “There’s definitely still some confusion surrounding the mandate,” said Katie McKain, Charleston’s director of sustainability. “I think people heard the enforcement was trending down due to COVID, but probably didn’t realize the regulations went back into effect.” The rule was suspended in March 2020 as small, locally owned businesses started struggling financially in the early days of the pandemic. But as people began to live with the “new normal” of pandemic life, the city reinstated the regulation to keep the city from backpedalling. But poor communication with the city’s businesses led to exactly that, some say. “Our conservation partners who do a lot of the litter sweeps noticed a difference in declining single-use plastics being found in the beginning of the year, and that speaks volumes,” said the Coastal Conservation League’s land, water and wildlife senior program director, Emily Cedzo. “Obviously what we saw in the last year was an uptick, and that’s been a bit disheartening.” Charleston County’s single-use plastics ban went back into place last week after County Council lifted
the local state of emergency order, a day after the governor did the same thing at the state level. Officials and advocates like Cedzo see the issue as temporary, able to be fixed with consistent enforcement and communication with business owners. “We’ve been reaching out to businesses and letting them know the ordinance is still in effect, and that’s working for a lot of the businesses that just don’t know about it,” McKain said. “Slowly, over time, with these policies back in place, we will once again see it make more and more a difference,” Cedzo said. The Charleston community was widely in favor of the ordinance when it went into effect, Cedzo said, as multiple studies of microplastics in Lowcountry waters showed the adverse effects of improper disposal of large quantities of plastic products. “If you remember the viral video of the turtle with the straw in its nose — videos like that really show how the plastic challenge is hurting our wildlife and how it impacts us,” McKain said. People can use the City of Charleston’s online reporting system with the Citizen Service Desk to report potential plastic violations and help keep business owners accountable and in compliance. Penalties for violations are minimal, if there are any at all, according to McKain, and most reports only warrant a letter or phone call to the business in question. —Skyler Baldwin

speed up the production of the briefing videos. As an attorney, Justin Bamberg has represented families of people shot and killed by police, including Walter Scott. As a Democrat in the state House of Representatives, Bamberg helped craft the 2015 body camera law. He sees instituting a project like Charleston’s as one way to rebuild trust between police and the public overall and explain technical aspects of law enforcement for someone who’s not well-versed. But inevitably, Bamberg knows some incidents will be challenging for departments to manage. “It’s easy to do one when it’s a fully justiBamberg fied shooting,” Bamberg said, “Where I think these critical incident (videos) are going to be tested (is) … Can they do them when law enforcement does something wrong?” The videos may give law enforcement another tool to be able to control the release of information, Bamberg said. But for better or worse, that’s nothing new. “At the end of the day, law enforcement always controls the narrative, period,” he said. From his vantage point as an attorney, Bamberg said what has changed is that with more eyes on police — be it from agency cameras or eyewitness video — there’s more pressure than ever for the truth to come out. “It got to the point where we’re going to control the narrative,” he said. “Because we’re going to work and find out what happened, and then where you won’t talk about it. We will.” “The facts are the facts.”

ourners and well-wishers in Charleston still leave flowers and photos at the foot of Emanuel AME Church. While the blooms wither and the clippings fade, South Carolina leaders have done almost nothing in response to nine lives cut short and a congregation shattered by racist hate six years ago. Sadly, signs of progress toward equality were especially hard to come by over the past year. Yes, the Calhoun monument was removed in Charleston. But in the months that followed, City Councilman Harry Griffin clumsily goaded a faction of closed-minded conservatives who haunt his inbox, including extremists who brought the Proud Boys to the steps of City Hall. Leaders responded accordingly by booting Griffin off a city committee created to root out institutional racism. Majority Whip James Clyburn’s bill to close the so-called Charleston loophole passed the U.S. House in March. But progress in the U.S. Senate has been stalled by the threat of a filibuster — a mechanism historically used to slow civil rights reforms. Now, it blocks a reasonable proposal born from white supremacist murders. Bills to fix the loophole in South Carolina law have not even made that much progress. They sit largely untouched. Slips and shrugs toward authoritarianism nationwide have emboldened Republicans in South Carolina, now equipped with even-lazier weapons to aid their legislative neglect: “Cancel culture!” “Socialist!” “Woke-ism!” Other states took steps in the past year to leave just South Carolina and Wyoming as the only states without hate crime laws.
Nonetheless, S.C. conservatives, buoyed by statewide success in the 2020 election, wasted no time putting the brakes on a long-debated hate crime law this year. Desperate proposals to remove LGBTQ protections showed some Republicans draw the line against some hate and discrimination while allowing it to fester elsewhere. What’s worse, several South Carolina lawmakers hitched their wagons to anti-LGBTQ groups that introduced copycat bills in statehouses nationwide. The bills thankfully went nowhere, but served their intended purposes: drumming up anger among the fundamentalist extremists who control the state Republican Party. The proposed hate crime law eventually passed the state House, but will face long odds in the Senate next year, where a Republican firewall serves as insurance against attempts at progressivism elsewhere. Of course, these debates all take place against the backdrop of the Heritage Act, which continues to enshrine Confederate protection in South Carolina law. Unfortunately, even if conservative culture wars quiet, GOP-controlled redistricting will likely make proposals that move S.C. to the middle even harder in the coming years. South Carolina leaders must grow up and quit running out the clock on important reforms. This state’s people are desperate for change. What we’ve been doing is not working. With so little appetite for changes, S.C. leaders should commit to two modest and overdue reforms by next year: Close the Charleston loophole and pass a hate crime law.

Should South Carolina cancel Critical Race Theory? By P.L. Thomas PROUD SPONSOR PROUD SPONSOR OF GOOD TIMES OF GOOD TIMES
Legislators in at least 15 states have introduced bills seeking to restrict how teachers can discuss racism, sexism and other social issues, according to Education Week.
PRODUCTS TO TAKE CARE OF HIS MOST PRIZED POSSESSIONS
In its 2021-22 budget (section 1.105), South Carolina has joined Republicans across the U.S. challenging Critical Race Theory (CRT) and The New York Times’ 1619 Project, and State Superintendent Molly Spearman has proclaimed CRT “ideology has no place in South Carolina schools and classrooms.” Two aspects of this attack on CRT are important to address. First, CRT is not a curriculum or program, but an obscure scholarly theory found in law programs not in K-12 education. Second, most critics never define CRT, which Victor Ray, a professor of sociology at the University of Iowa, describes as follows:

Simply put, CRT examines situations around race through the lens of structural, not individual, racism. For example, using CRT to understand police killing Black people at a higher rate than white people is grounded in Black people being perceived as older than their biological age (consider Tamir Rice), not necessarily that individual police officers are racists. Legislation aimed at CRT or the 1619 Project threatens academic freedom and the education of South Carolina students. As Eesha Pendharkar reports in EdWeek: “[E]xperts say the laws ultimately will unravel years of administrators’ fitful efforts to improve educational opportunities and academic outcomes for America’s children of color, who today make up the majority of the nation’s student body.” What, then, might these attacks “unravel”?
Canceling Critical Race Theory and the 1619 Project is political theater, a solution in search of a problem. Race and racism remain a significant part of life and education in South Carolina. Republicans are poised to ruin the needed, but incomplete, work identified above. It is critical that teachers and students are free to know the truth so we can create the future we believe is possible.

“Critical race theory arose to explain why structural racism endures … Despite internal disagreements, critical race theorists have documented a stunning (and disturbing) array of racial inequalities that can’t be explained by the acts of individual racists.”
• Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) training (implicit bias, systemic racism, microaggressions and racial privilege). This training is common for educators and students, but worth monitoring because DEI training can be ineffective or serve as superficial distractions allowing schools to avoid harder diversity work. • Diversifying faculty and the curriculum. Public school teachers are about 80% white, less diverse than society and students in public school. which are increasingly Black and brown. Also, a greater representation of Black and brown voices and history have been included in what students are taught, typically in English/ ELA and history/social studies. Diversifying the curriculum has prompted controversial legislation by Republicans, however. • Expanding educational access and improving educational quality for children of color. Black and brown students are under-represented in advanced programs, such as Advanced Placement and gifted programs, and often are taught by teachers with the least experience and who are under-/un-certified. Public schools, instead of being a “great equalizer,” often reflect and perpetuate inequity.

pedestrians. It detracts from natural beauty, and it takes resources to clean that could be applied elsewhere. And of course, it pollutes our waters and harms the environment.” Litter discarded along roadways or elsewhere could be contributing to the worsening flooding in the Charleston area. Carried by rainwater runoff to storm drains, garbage can stop up local drainage systems. “I don’t think people realize that when you have litter that gets into storm drains, it prevents them from working to allow water to flow through, and that impacts flooding, particularly with creeks and tributaries,” Lyles explained. “We have to keep those waters flowing freely.” Advocates say it goes beyond plastic bags, straws or cups tossed aside. “We can think about litter as waste products that have been discarded incorrectly or at an unsuitable location or in excess,” said Betsy La Force, Coastal Conservation League’s communities and transportation senior project manager. “Landfills represent a lot of that. Even if your trash is ending up in a trash can and ultimately landfill, the footprint, the impact of your waste, is still contributing to climate change and greenhouse gasses. “There’s a much larger environmental cost to sending By Skyler Baldwin organic waste to the landfill, where it’s unable to break early 1,000 volunteers with the Keep Charleston Beautiful program down in a natural way,” she said. “A lot of people think of have put more than 2,000 collective hours into cleaning up the food waste as being organic, breaking down on its own, Lowcountry, picking up more than 22,000 pounds of litter just this but when it ends up in a landfill, covered up by plastic and year, and if years prior are any indication, they have plenty more compressed down to save space, it’s trying to decompose ahead of them. without oxygen, and that’s what produces the methane gas.” According to La Force, municipal solid-waste land“It’s a lot of work to keep it all picked up,” said the City of Charleston’s Department of Parks director Jason Kronsberg. “They fills, like the county’s Bees Ferry Road Landfill, are the third-largest source of human-related methane emissions pick up litter sometimes once a week, sometimes every other week in the U.S. and the leading contribdepending on the roadway, and when you pick up the litter, utor to climate change according to it can be back within an hour.” All Kinds of Litter the U.S. Environmental Protection And they aren’t the only group who sees the issue.

People can call in to the hotline when they see someone littering, or a hotspot that needs to be cleaned up. “We are one of the few states that have one of these hotlines,” Lyles said. “It’s just a way to empower citizens and let them be a part of the enforcement of litter laws and help educate people of the econsequences of their actions.” PalmettoPride boasts four program areas in total, including education, where they visit classrooms to teach students about littering and community cleanup. But, both Lyles and La Force said more needs to be done at every level to make a dramatic difference in the problematic effects of litter. “If we can figure out how to encourage more residents to compost, even on their own, or from a municipal collections standpoint where they can roll out food waste and kitchen scraps across the city — it needs to be easy, affordable and accessible, and right now, it’s not,” La Force said. Composting, she said, needs to be a big priority for solutions. “That will really help contribute to other issues that are interrelated,” La Force said. “It can make soil more absorbent for stormwater, and it can help establish that farm-totable loop that many restaurants that source local produce from local farms. It just expands out so far.” Since implementing the hotline, Lyles said she has seen fewer and fewer calls and reports of littering in the area. But, she said that could have been due to the pandemic keeping people inside more often. At the moment, she said, it’s difficult to determine where the numbers are trending. But Kronsberg said local efforts combined with new city programs should work to reduce overall litter throughout the Lowcountry.

Artifacts Brookgreen Gardens announces 90th anniversary summer lineup
Two Wings explored the music of the Great Migration Leigh Webber

Closing the book on 2021, Spoleto charges into new chapter By Michael Smallwood As I sat under the lights and overhanging leaves of the Rivers Green performance space, I was overcome by a very strong thought. The same thought came to me in multiple strong waves on opening night of The Woman in Black in Festival Hall: I am so happy to be sitting in a theater again. After a year of Zoom play readings, stitched-together virtual performances and live streamed offerings, Spoleto Festival USA provided a desperately needed breath of fresh air. Not everything about this year’s COVID-protocol inspired season was perfect, but it was exactly the kind of cautious step needed to reenter the world of live performing arts. When Spoleto’s 45th season was initially announced, vaccine rollout had just started, and anxiety about being outdoors and around unmasked people was still at a pandemic high. It was somewhat awkward, then, to walk into Rivers Green and
remove my mask once I got to my seat. But it felt good. Every single performer was unmasked, and every single performance (from ballet to The Cookers) included some acknowledgement of what it meant for the performers to be performing in front of audiences instead of computer screens. That felt good. And being able to applaud a performance and see the performers feeding off that energy? That felt really good. Rivers Green was a beautiful setting for the dance program this year, and I desperately hope it returns. Several members of Spoleto’s board echoed high praise for the new pillared performance space during a May 31 board meeting. Moving forward, Rivers Green could continue to host the dance programs, or be an excellent setting for some visiting Shakespeare plays. COVID protocols and planning meant that much of the Spoleto 2021 slate was extremely limited. New Orleans Jazz Celebration, Preservation Hall Jazz Band,
Two Wings and The Cookers were all onenight engagements. They all took place in the Cistern Yard, this year’s largest venue, but at a fraction of normal seating. Most of the attendants of Spoleto 2021 will have missed all four of these stellar performances. That’s a shame, and of course something that future years hopefully won’t have to deal with. While much of the future remains uncertain, next year’s Spoleto is currently in the works as each season starts being built well in advance. 2022, in many ways, will be the first page of a new chapter, and it’s something board president Alicia Gregory is excited about. “We need a robust festival. We need a full blown, all genres represented in all their glory, really robust festival.” she said. We know Omar, the big centerpiece opera of the canceled 2020 season, will be making its long-awaited debut. Composed by Michael Abels and Grammy-winner CONTINUED ON PAGE 19

‘A Father’s Legacy’ is personal for Sumter-native director Jason Mac By Kirstin McWaters The Terrace Theater did an admirable job of navigating the pandemic, with private theater rentals and pivoting to a popular drive-in theater experience. Now that it’s open indoors again, it’s time to get back to the more familiar experience of an air-conditioned movie theater to escape the summer heat. The theater will host the premiere of the harrowing and heartfelt drama, A Father’s Legacy, on June 17, with an introduction from director Jason Mac and a Q&A with casting director Matthew Sefick. A Father’s Legacy centers around a young man on the run from the law. He stumbles across an old man living in the woods and decides to hold him hostage in his own home in an effort to evade the police. They begin to form an unconventional and unexpected bond. The film, according to Mac, isn’t an action-packed thriller, as moments in the trailer may Through that suggest. “This movie is definitely more process of drama centric,” he explained. grieving, I really “There are some really fun moments of suspense, tension and started exploring some action. But at the heart, this is a story about redemption, loyalty that father-son and legacy — what are we leaving relationship and behind and how are we impacting those people around us.” what it meant A Father’s Legacy is powerful and why it was so and personal to Mac — the influence of his life on the film is deep important to me.” and wide. The passing of his late —Actor-director Jason Mac father inspired him to make it, and that grief is woven through the film in many ways. “Through that process of grieving, I really started exploring that father-son relationship and what it meant and why it was so important to me,” he said. “To say there was a heavy personal influence on the film is an understatement … This film is my soul. It truly is my love letter to my late father.” The fact that the film was shot in Sumter, Mac’s hometown, with huge parts filmed at his family’s pond house, made the process all

Tobin Bell (left) and Jason Mac star in Mac’s feature film directorial debut, A Father’s Legacy the more personal for him. “One of the decisions to come back home to shoot was a personal decision,” he said. “The film came from one of the tougher times in my life ... and that’s why it was important to me to bring it back home to shoot. I needed to be in a place of love and community. I wanted to be on the ground that my father loved. I knew that love and authenticity would come through the camera and into the movie...and it did.” The premiere of A Father’s Legacy with introduction by Mac, and Q&A after the film with Sefick - 7 p.m. June 17.

and MacArthur Fellow Rhiannon Giddens, Omar is based on the life and autobiography of Omar Ibn Said, an African and Muslim man who was enslaved and brought to Charleston in 1807. During the virtual opening gala this year, Giddens performed a selection from the opera called “Omar’s Aria,” a beautiful piece that served to whet the appetite for next year’s full-scale production. Additionally, all festivals henceforth will be guided by a new hand after general director Nigel Redden steps down this fall. The board is already in the process of selecting a new general director. Redden “Here we are, getting ready to embark upon a new chapter, and it’s just exciting because we have such a strong foundation for our next leader to come in and build upon,” said Gregory. It remains to be seen just how different Spoleto will feel without Nigel’s guiding vision. Another unknown is whether Spoleto will continue to embrace virtual offerings. Some of the decisions it made this year may be worth investing in again. The availability of Chamber Music program excerpts on YouTube and the entire series airing on S.C. Public Radio opened up the sold-out showcase to those who couldn’t afford or find tickets. The Meet the Orchestra and Meet the Choir video series were also great fun, providing unique insights into the personalities of the performers. It was unique. It was limited. It was different. But 2021 was undeniably Spoleto Festival USA. It was, in so many ways, a celebration of live performing arts after a long drought. I am very curious to see where the festival goes in 2022 and beyond.

Though this will be the event’s eighth year, Charleston Beer Week (CBW) is no stranger to rescheduling its events — the annual gathering has been derailed numerous times thanks to hurricane season. “Let’s try this again,” organizers wrote in an online post. The 2021 event will still take place at the end tail end of hurricane season. Fingers crossed! —Samantha Connors

Jesse Van Note and Andrew Ross said the name of their shop is a reference to the rarity of in-demand beers
Asheville’s The Whale craft beer shop opening in August
By Parker Milner
Jesse Van Note and Andrew Ross are bringing their 4-year-old craft beer collective and tasting room to the new Refinery development on upper Meeting Street, where they’ll offer 20 rotating drafts and 150-plus options in cans and bottles. The Whale is set to open in August, but Van Note and Ross are making a splash in the Charleston beer scene this week, with the launch of “The Whale is Coming,” a collaborative beer with Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co. that will be available statewide. “We’ve just kind of always loved Charleston,” said Van Note, who opened the original Whale location in Asheville in 2017 before adding a second outpost in Greenville in 2019. “Charleston and Asheville are very interchangeable as far as the vibe, as far as food and drink. When the beach people want to go to the mountains, they go to Asheville, and when the mountain people want to go to the beach, they go to Charleston. I think it’s just the natural choice.” Once open, The Whale will sell a curated list of sometimes-hard-to-find beers sourced from around the world, along with wine, sake, cider and non-alcoholic options. “In the beer world, hard-to-source beers or rare beers — which can even just be beers not from your area — they’re considered
whales,” Van Note said. “It’s kind of like a reference to the white whale.” According to the duo, who met while working at popular Asheville brewery Wicked Weed, the idea for The Whale came to them one night while drinking post-shift beers. “It really just came to us that there wasn’t a place to drink non-Asheville beer in town,” Van Note said. “For being such a beer-centric city, it just kind of seemed odd to us that there wasn’t a place to drink beer from around the world.” So, what can you expect to find at The Whale Charleston? Well, there will be a little bit of everything. Belgian ales and classic German styles will be mainstays, and there will be a house pilsner that will be unique to Charleston. The Whale will also feature a wide selection of gluten-free options, sparkling rosé — both of which will be available on draft — sake, non-alcoholic beer and more, Van Note said. Patrons will be able to enjoy their drinks on-premises or take them to-go for the same price. “A lot of it comes from Ross and I being big travelers and going around the country and always seeking out a beer bar to go to,” he said. “We both realized that it was a passion of ours to kind of find that spot, and we’ve used those places as our starting point for inspirations for this.” The duo plans to have a food truck parked
outside most nights, and they think that along with their non-alcoholic options will make The Whale a place for everyone. “That’s another thing that separates us,” said Ross, describing The Whale’s selection of 20-plus non-alcoholic beers. “We’ve built a very large non-alcoholic beer program as well because I think that’s one of the things that’s been missing from beer culture. Being able to still enjoy the bar without having to drink has been a big thing. Right now, the stuff that we’re liking is [from] a brewery called Untitled Art, and they’re doing everything from a hazy IPA to fruited sours to big stouts, and they’re all non-alcoholic.” The Whale is coming to Charleston in August, and its new collaborative beer with Edmund’s Oast Brewing Co. will be available throughout North and South Carolina starting this week. “It’s Ross and I’s favorite beer style, which is a smoked helles, so it’s a light German lager with a little bit of roasted malt,” Van Note said. “[Edmund’s Oast was] very open to helping us launch the brand in Charleston so definitely very excited.” The Whale is targeting an August 2021 opening. Once open, its hours will be 12-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 12 p.m.12 a.m. Friday-Saturday. For more information, visit thewhaleavl.com.

Biscuit Bae owner Jobeth Massey knows there isn’t a shortage of high-quality biscuits in Charleston. That’s why she’s setting herself apart, adding whimsical, seasonal touches to her handmade, three-ingredient buttermilk biscuits, which she delivers to folks all over the Lowcountry by the dozen. “I started selling a strawberry and then also a blueberry biscuit this spring, and those two have been great hits,” Massey said. “I use fresh fruit that I freeze, and they have a coordinating glaze. Really just highlighting the ingredients and thinking a little outside the box.” Like many, Massey turned to baking during the pandemic — her family owned a Beaufort restaurant called Shoofly Kitchen when she was a kid, so cooking has been in the family, the College of Charleston graduate said. “Both of my parents are excellent chefs. My mom focused on the baked goods, and my dad was just a great cook,” she said. “Obviously with COVID, a lot of people started exploring their hobbies and ways to relieve stress,” she said. “I’ve been

biscuit — it’s just three ingredients — you just have to kind of know what you’re doing,” Massey said, describing some of her other specialty flavors. “I did what I’m calling a ‘YOLO’ biscuit, and that has sugar, vanilla mascarpone and sprinkles, so that’s a lot of fun.” Maple brown sugar, herbs de Provence and harissa are some of the other Biscuit Bae biscuits Massey has crafted since launching her business, which has outgrown her Park Circle home. Massey now bakes all the biscuits at Neighbors Commissary Kitchen in North Charleston before delivering them throughout Charleston, and she’s planning to add a pick-up option soon. Moving forward, she plans to offer six standard flavors and one seasonal offering, each of which start with the OG biscuit recipe she perfected during quarantine. “It’s kind of a combination of a lot of different techniques that I’ve seen, and then just growing up in the kitchen with my mom and learning to work with different types of dough,” said Massey, describing what sets her biscuits apart. “I started this as a side hustle in the fall — it’s been really well received.”

Free Will Astrology ARIES (March 21-April 19): Aries playwright Tennessee Williams was honest about the trickery he engaged in as he composed his entertaining masterpieces. “I don’t want realism,” he exclaimed. “I want magic! Yes, yes, magic! I try to give that to people.” I fully support you, Aries, if you would like to make that your goal in the next three weeks. In my astrological opinion, you and the people in your life have more than a mild need for magic. Your ability to thrive depends on you all getting big doses of magic. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): On my wall is a poster that says, “Avoid the Tragic Magic Triad: taking things too personally, taking things too seriously and taking things too literally.” This advice doesn’t refer to important matters, like my health or my ongoing fight against our culture’s bigotry. I take those issues very personally, seriously and literally. Rather the motto refers to trivial and transitory issues, like the new dent made in my car by a hit-and-run driver in the Whole Foods parking lot, or the bad review of my book on Amazon.com, or the $18 that a certain Etsy seller cheated me out of, or the joke about the size of my nose that some supposed friend made on Twitter. According to my reading of astrological omens, Taurus, you would benefit right now from meditating on things like these that you take too seriously, personally and literally. Here’s Don Miguel Ruiz: “There is a huge amount of freedom that comes to you when you take nothing personally.” GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “I remember wishing I could be boiled like water and made pure again,” writes poet Jeffrey McDaniel. Judging from the current astrological omens, Gemini, I think you could be made reasonably pure again without having to endure an ordeal like being boiled like water. Do you have ideas about how to proceed? Here are mine: 1. Spend 15 minutes alone. With your eyes closed, sitting in a comfortable chair, forgive everyone who has hurt you. Do the best you can. Perfection isn’t necessary. 2. Spend another 15 minutes alone, same deal. Forgive yourself of everything you’ve done that you think of as errors. Perfection isn’t required. 3. Spend another 15 minutes alone. Imagine what it would be like to unconditionally love yourself exactly as you are. 4. Spend another 15 minutes alone. Remember ten amazing moments that you enjoyed between ages 5 and 13. CANCER (June 21-July 22): On June 23, 1940, Wilma Rudolph was born prematurely to a family that already had 19 other children. During her childhood, she suffered from pneumonia, scarlet fever, polio and infant paralysis. The latter two diseases damaged her left leg, and she wore a brace until she was 12 years old. Nevertheless, by the time she was in high school, she had become a very good athlete. Eventually she competed in the Olympics, where she won four medals and earned the title “the fastest woman in history.” I propose that we name her your official role model for the rest of 2021. May she inspire you to overcome and transcend your own personal adversity. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Leo-born P. L. Travers wrote the children’s books about Mary Poppins, a nanny with magical powers. She was thoroughly familiar with folklore, ancient myths and the occult. The character of Mary Poppins, Travers said, was a version of the Mother Goddess. But in her writing process, she drew inspiration mainly from what she thought of as the vast dark nothingness. She wrote, “I’ve become convinced that the great treasure to possess is the unknown.” To generate her tales, she listened to silence and emptiness. I recommend you emulate her approach as you create the next chapter of your life story. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo poet Melissa Broder writes,“Romantic obsession is my first language. I live in a world of fantasies, infatuations and love poems.” I wouldn’t normally authorize you to share her perspective, but I will now. The astrological omens suggest you have something important to learn from being more enamored and adoring than usual. If you say “YES” to the deluge of yearning, you’ll gain access to a type of power that will prove
By Rob Brezsny
very useful to you in the coming months. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Libran author Oscar Wilde disproved the misconception that Libras are wishy-washy, overly eager to compromise, and inclined to overthink everything. His writing had wit and flair, and his life was vivid and daring. He wrote, “There are moments when one has to choose between living one’s own life, fully, entirely, completely — or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands.” I suspect that one of those pivotal moments will soon be coming up for you. Be Wilde-like! SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Philosopher Simone Weil wrote, “Only the light that falls continually from the sky gives a tree the energy to push powerful roots into the earth. The tree is actually rooted in the sky.” As you bolster your foundations in the coming months, as you deepen your roots, I hope you keep Weil’s brilliant observation in mind. Like a tree, the nourishment that will help you grow the stamina and strength and structure you need will come as you turn to the brightest, warmest, highest sources of inspiration. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): To be in groovy alignment with cosmic rhythms, you won’t merely walk, and you certainly won’t trudge. Rather you will saunter and ramble and promenade. You will strut and rove and prowl. Likewise, you won’t just talk, and you certainly won’t mutter or grumble. Instead you will banter, rhapsodize, improvise, beguile, and lyricize. Catch my drift? You won’t simply laugh, but will chortle, cackle and guffaw. In other words, Sagittarius, you are authorized to imbue everything you do with style, panache, and imagination. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Congratulations on being such a duty-bound, no-nonsense adult. May you continue to ply your dogged persistence and beast-of-burden attitude as long as it gets important tasks done, helps you feel useful and doesn’t make you sick. But if you do get tempted to depart from the sacrificial path anytime soon, please know that you will not offend any gods or demons. Nor will you incur a karmic debt. In fact, I believe you have cosmic clearance to dabble with lightheartedness for a while. You should feel free to experiment with fun and games that appeal to your sense of wonder. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “I can barely conceive of a type of beauty in which there is no melancholy,” wrote poet Charles Baudelaire. What?! That makes no sense. I’m aware of millions of beautiful things that aren’t tinctured with melancholy. California’s Mount Shasta in the late spring twilight, for example. New York City’s Guggenheim Museum, a gorgeous gleaming building designed by genius architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The Marmore waterfalls in central Italy. The gardens of painter Claude Monet in Normandy, France. David Byrne’s gloriously hopeful website, ReasonsToBeCheerful.world. I mention this, Aquarius, because I expect life to bring you a flood of non-melancholic beauty in the coming days. Take advantage of this grace to replenish your trust in life. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Piscean author César Aira praises the value of escaping one’s memories. He writes, “Forgetting is like a great alchemy free of secrets, transforming everything to the present.” I’d love to see you enjoy alchemy like that in the coming weeks, dear Pisces. It’s a favorable time to lose at least some of the inhibitions and limitations you think you have to accept because of what happened in the past. As Aira says, forgetting “makes our lives into a visible and tangible thing we hold in our hands, with no folds left hidden in the past.” Homework: My birthday’s coming up.

Shovel & Rope kept the creative juices flowing during the shutdown with two LPs, a graphic novel and a dabble in improv
A Shovels & Rope homecoming
By Kevin Wilson
Internationally acclaimed folk duo Shovels & Rope is wife-husband team Cary Ann Hearst and Michael Trent, who are still happily based right here in the Lowcountry no matter their increasing notoriety. The pandemic forced the road warriors back home to Johns Island last year, but their upcoming cross-country tour will route them back through town for two outdoor performances at the Pour House this weekend. There have been many milestones for Shovels & Rope over the last dozen or so years, including a handful of stellar studio albums, two well-received film projects, and a carefully curated annual music festival. Even so, Hearst and Trent said becoming parents has been among the most impactful events of their lives. “It definitely did something to us,” Trent said. Hearst added, “After we became parents, music just sounded different, and we both became a little more sentimental.” Judging from the couple’s continued creative output, having kids seems to have enhanced the artistic exploration within Hearst and Trent’s family unit. For example, while stuck home during lockdown, they kept busy making joyful noise with two LPs and what started out as a children’s book but evolved into a graphic novel for adults. Beyond that, Hearst and Trent said they
have even been workshopping with local improv company Nameless Numberhead on a few dark comedy themes. As for the new music, one of these collections is already available, Busted Jukebox Vol. 3, affectionately nicknamed “Busted Juice Box.” It continues Shovels & Rope’s penchant for collaborating on eclectic covers with other like-minded musicians. Serving as a periodic diversion for Hearst and Trent from expanding upon their own songbook, the overall vibe of these “jukebox” sessions is always loose and fun. It turns out, though, that picking the tunes and matching them with other artists is a methodical process for Shovels & Rope. As Hearst explains, “We are big music fans ourselves, so we are always making lists of songs we’d like to do and always thinking about who else we might want to work with and what sort of sound their particular style might bring to any given song.” Trent confirmed the second untitled record Shovels & Rope started during the 2020 quarantine will contain the couple’s next batch of original compositions and should be available in early 2022. Acknowledging it’s been a tough time for everyone in the music business, Hearst and Trent are proud of the flurry of activity that continued for them even as the rest of the world shut down. That said, the pair light

up even more when the talk turns to hitting the road, performing in front of audiences all over America again. At the moment though, Hearst and Trent seem especially pleased about revisiting their old stomping grounds at the Charleston Pour House for two upcoming parking lot pod shows. “The Pour House has always been a special space for us,” Hearst said. “Playing there again will be sort of a homecoming affair because we have had such a long relationship with that venue and because it was one of the places that helped keep us afloat when we were first finding our way.” Shovels & Rope will perform at the Charleston Pour House June 18 at 6 p.m. and June 19 at 9:15 p.m. $42.50+ For tickets, visit charlestonpourhouse.com.
Local singer-songwriter Samantha Gaton describes her sound as a playful melange of pop and alternative with a touch of country twang. Although she composed “Underwater” when she was 18, she recently submitted it for release through producer Stuart Epps — who has worked with greats such as Elton John and Queen — resulting in a more polished sound. Gaton will perform at Rusty Bull on June 25 at 7 p.m. Gaton is also in the process of recording demo songs with British songwriter and record producer Adrian Zagoritis for a musical set to hit the stage in the United Kingdom. —Kate Bryan
New remix from indie outfit Babe Club Par for the 2020 course, Babe Club’s “Need a Girl” remix was supposed to be released Labor Day last year but the pandemic pushed it back. Although, with the playful vocal loops and house bass drops, the new remix is perfect for a summer day in the sun. The new mix is from Chicago-based producer duo, whimsy. “I like the way they painted the song,” said Babe Club frontwoman Jenna Desmond. “The song is positive and melancholy in a way, but the spirit of it is me wanting to dance with a bunch of girls to it; and that’s what the remix does for me.” —Chelsea Grinstead
JI rock band Majic Dust debuts two singles Johns Island musicians Rob Hampton and Jonathan Carman formed rock band Majic Dust in early 2018 after their jam sessions turned into something more. The band has since recruited guitarist/bassist JR Spencer to record as a trio for a forthcoming album, which has two singles released so far, “Disappear” and “Abandon All Hope.” When the group opens for Shovels & Rope on June 19, Majic Dust will be rounded out with a fourth, Little Bird bassist Ben Mossman. Between the two singles, you will hear dystopian lyrics and moody, heavy rock. —CG

Make sure to tune in to hear DJ NattyHeavy, aka Nate Lopes, on his Heavy in the Mornings radio show from 6-10 a.m. every weekday morning on Old Skool 92.1 where you can hear ‘80s and ‘90s hiphop and rhythm and blues. After 14 years DJing the Charleston scene and hosting diverse radio shows, it’s no surprise Lopes has been voted Charleston’s best club DJ since 2013. We asked him what his top old-school summer songs are, and he didn’t fail to deliver a playlist he says hits a specific vibe: “riding with the windows open on the way back from the beach with ya whole sandy foot out the window.”
Jaee Bryant’s new album is his testimony of perseverance The six songs on local rapper Jaee Bryant’s new EP, Marinatin the Game, are enough to keep you lifted above whatever is dragging you down. “I’m soaking up the ingredients of the industry,” Bryant said. “I took the time to realize I am independent. I’m trying to soak up as many avenues as I can.” Sitting down and reflecting on living his life is what starts his songwriting process, then whatever beat or phrase comes to his mind is what becomes the hook. Bryant’s motivational rap is reminiscent of West Coast gangsta-funk, reflecting on what it’s like to go after what you want with as little stress as possible. On the new track, “Be Free,” he raps: “I’m thinking about my new ways / many ways to get paid / my free time I just parlay / and do it my way.” With phrases like “money coming in my sleep,” the track celebrates his self-made success. “I was going through a lot the past couple of years before this album. But I’m actually happy now, with my relationship, my life and my business. I was in a shell. Now I’m actually collaborating with different people” — like local rapper Kingg on the new song, “Paper,” and California-based producer DJ Idea who engineered the album. In the past Bryant would arrange all his work, but Marinatin the Game was a chance for him to just take the time to write and branch out with collaborations. Speaking on both “The Ghost of Chad (Intro)” and “The Spirit of Hustla (Outro),” of the new EP is rapper Pimp C from Underground Kingz.

Jaee Bryant celebrates the good things in life and honors a rapper gone too soon on his new EP “He’s a legend. I was always inspired by what he was saying to the people,” Bryant said. For Bryant, Pimp C was a voice of unity and truth, telling what the opposition within the music industry was really like for Black people. He used to watch the late rapper’s interviews and used small pieces of them with permission to reflect his inspiration for pushing forward with his music. Bryant realizes that there’s both good and bad with being independent under his own brand Never Say Ruin, but he feels lucky to have a team he trusts. And the shutdown focused his intentions even more. “Never stop dreaming. Just keep grinding. Keep your head up. That’s one thing I’ve learned. There were a couple times I doubted myself. I just kept going.” —Chelsea Grinstead

” Dana Jackson makes and sells elderberry syrup and elderberry lemonade online and at Goose Creek’s farmers market
Elderberry syrup will change your life L
adson resident Dana Jackson started Elderberries From Heaven LLC earlier this year to share her passion for the hand-crafted health benefits she’s seen from elderberry syrup. “As a mother seeking to offer natural and organic remedies to my son, I introduced elderberry syrup into our diets last year and our lives have not been the same,” the 29-year-old mother says. “Our family quickly realized the benefits of consuming small amounts of elderberry syrup on a daily basis and we wanted to share it with the world.”
Fresh ingredients with natural benefits Our lab-tested, ServSafe-certified elderberry syrup is made in a commercial kitchen from five natural ingredients: organic dried elderberries, pure lemon juice, local raw honey, fresh ginger and organic cinnamon. “We have developed the perfect recipe for elderberry syrup that not only provides you with an abundance of nutrients, but tastes great,” Jackson says. “And if you love our syrup, you’ll love our elderberry lemonade even more.”
You can purchase Elderberries From Heaven syrup, lemonade and new products online and on Saturdays at Goose Creek’s farmers market, 519 North Goose Creek Blvd. Disclaimer: These statements have not been evaluated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
