Be on the lookout for journalist Fernando Soto reporting from his blue Nuestro Estado van

‘Some progress, but not enough’ Latino advocate Fernando Soto talks life experience, journalism in a ‘deep-red’ SC

News 09.08.2021

By Skyler Baldwin

Fernando Soto, an advocate for the Latinx community in Charleston, has had a long history of balancing his advocacy with his journalism work since graduating from Alabama’s Spring Hill College in 2016. Growing up as an undocumented immigrant with his parents on Johns Island, Soto made connections with members of the community from the grassroots, up, along with working with multiple media outlets before finally setting out to create his own: Nuestro Estado, a digital Spanish-language newspaper with a deep reach in the Lowcountry. By the time the pandemic rolled around, Soto had already established his publication and quickly partnered with state health care experts and professionals to provide testing to Spanish-speaking communities and later, vaccinations. Follow Soto on Facebook, where he streams breaking news and on-the-ground

updates, and find his work at nuestroestado. com. And when you’re out and about, be on the lookout for the blue Nuestro Estado van. We sat down with Soto last week at El Molino market in West Ashley to talk about his roots and reach over a few fresh tacos. Charleston City Paper: At what point growing up, before journalism, did you start transitioning into the sort of advocacy work you’ve done for the Latinx community? Fernando Soto: I don’t know; I think it just happened as a part of growing up as an immigrant child with parents who worked two or three jobs just to make ends meet. They didn’t really have time to study English and learn, so very early on, I was always translating for folks. It kind of became a part of who I was — part of my personality. And I’ve always been a defensive type of person, because I’ve encountered a lot of problems in

Charleston, specifically with accessibility. And although at the time I didn’t realize the full spectrum of it, I knew that sometimes people were not being treated the same because they didn’t speak the same language, and that frustrated me. That’s carried along with me into adulthood — into everything that I do now, but now, obviously, I have the ability to move the needle forward a little bit and influence other folks into making decisions or being informed, and the idea is to incorporate Latinos into the greater part of the community. CP: Do you think, over time, you’ve seen some of those positive changes come about? Soto: There’s been some progress, but not enough. I think there’s more language acceessiblity than there was 20 years ago, CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

RiverDogs’ regular season winding down at The Joe The Charleston RiverDogs have just one more week of home games during the regular season — that’s six more chances to see the Dogs play at The Joe before the playoffs. The team returns home this week for its final home games against the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. The RiverDogs are 74-31, the outright No. 1 team in the Low-A East league, sitting 11.5 games ahead of the Salem Red Sox. With only a handful of games left, the team has already claimed the Low-A East South division title. The postseason will include a best-of-five series against the second place team from the Low-A East league, running Sept. 21-29. The team is firing on all cylinders at the moment, scoring 34 runs in just two games last week against the Columbia Fireflies. Of course, the organization still has some great theme nights, promotions and giveaways planned for the final few regular-season games at the Joe: • Sept. 8: Wicked Weed Wednesday. PLUS: Bobblehead bonanza. • Sept. 9: Thirsty Thursday. PLUS, Boiled Peanuts night. • Sept. 10: Fireworks Friday. • Sept. 11: Patriot Day, with red, white and blue lights all night. • Sept. 12: Major league card set giveaways.

Governments mandate employee vaccinations

SC testing near peak as COVID infections rise South Carolina’s daily COVID-19 testing figures are nearing record levels previously only seen on isolated days in early 2021, with spikes over 40,000 daily tests last week. Laboratory testing ranged from 17,625 to 45,711 tests per day over the week Aug. 22-28, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Testing reached its peak in January, only recording more than 50,000 tests twice, Jan. 12 and Jan. 18. These figures do not include antibody and antigen tests. According to state Department of Health and Environmental Control media relations manager Ron Aiken, there are a number of causes for the increase, including the more infectious delta variant driving exposures and infections back up to 2020 peaks. And, with a return to in-person school without mask mandates, FDA approval for vaccines for children under 12 and parents returning to work, more people have felt the need to get vaccinated than before. In addition, Aiken said, guidelines for school districts and many workplaces now encourage or require testing when experiencing light symptoms, potentially leading to the uptick. Some private entities also require negative COVID-19 tests prior to engaging in certain events and activities. If you’re among the tens of thousands seeking tests, don’t worry: Increased demand for testing has not significantly impacted average times to get results, though testing times may be longer than earlier in the summer. —Skyler Baldwin

SC among 5 GOP-led states being investigated over mask-mandate bans

6

The U.S. Department of Education Monday announced an investigation into five Republican-led states that have banned mask mandates in schools. Federal education officials said the policies could amount to discrimination against students with disabilities or certain health conditions. The inquiries follow disability rights groups and parents of disabled children filing a federal lawsuit Aug. 24, challenging the South Carolina budget proviso that bans school districts from requiring masks in schools. Department officials said it is launching

the investigations at its own discretion, not in response to complaints and lawsuits. The department’s Office for Civil Rights sent letters to education leaders in five states that have barred schools from mandating masks for students and staff: Iowa, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Utah. “It’s simply unacceptable that state leaders are putting politics over the health and education of the students they took an oath to serve,” Education secretary Miguel Cardona said in a statement. “The department will fight to protect

every student’s right to access in-person learning safely.” The S.C. Department of Education responded to City Paper editor Sam Spence on Twitter, saying state Superintendent Molly Spearman “already addressed” the issues raised, with a link to an Aug. 18 memo questioned in the letter from the feds. If the investigations determine that the state mask bans have discriminated against students with disabilities, it could lead to sanctions including a loss of federal education funding. —Skyler Baldwin

Charleston, North Charleston and Charleston County will all require employees to be vaccinated as a condition of employment. The City of North Charleston became the first municipal government in the state Sept. 1 with an executive order saying it will mandate its 1,101 workers be vaccinated against COVID-19. State and local governments are some of the largest employers in Charleston and South Carolina generally. But until last week, the main local employers to mandate vaccines for workers have been public and private-sector health care organizations and the U.S. military. State Municipal Association officials said North Charleston was the first local government to mandate employee vaccines. Charleston County Council called a special meeting Sept. 2 and passed a similar measure. Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg issued an executive order mandating COVID-19 vaccinations Sept. 3. Together, the three local governments represent nearly 5,000 employees across three counties. Mayor Keith Summey said the recent surge in cases “further heightened a compelling interest” to take steps to stop the spread of the virus. “To achieve and maintain a workplace that is free from this known health and safety hazard, the city is adopting a mandatory vaccination policy to protect our employees and their families, as well as the citizens, vendors and visitors we serve,” Summey said. North Charleston employees, volunteers and interns must be fully vaccinated by Nov. 5, according to Summey’s executive order. County workers must be vaccinated by Oct. 24, and City of Charleston workers by Nov. 22. Charleston's city limits stretch into two counties and North Charleston’s stretch into three, each boasting higher fullvaccination rates than South Carolina as a whole. But in recent weeks, as cases have spiked, Dorchester County has seen the highest rate of infections in the state, according to New York Times analysis. MUSC, Roper St. Francis Healthcare, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Joint Base Charleston have all announced plans for vaccine requirements. Major private-sector employers like Boeing South Carolina, Trident Health System, Bosch and Mercedes-Benz Vans have not taken steps to mandate vaccines, but many say they encourage employees to do so. —Sam Spence


but not substantial — not intentional. Only if we ask for it will they give it, and only in that area in which we’ve asked, and then, it’s kind of sub-par. One of the frustrating things about the pandemic is that there’ve been so many resources available to the community through local government, but the City of Charleston doesn’t even have a Spanish webpage to access some of that information. CP: Walk us through the journey of Nuestro Estado; how did you manage to grow from a one-man band, small outfit, to a digital paper with as wide of a reach as you’ve gotten? Soto: I did it with, like, $100 because I didn’t have a whole lot of money, and I just kind of had to make it work, and one of the things that has been crucial to making it work is the community. I grew up here, so I already knew a lot of the community, and as an immigrant, I have that firsthand experience that a lot of people in our area go through. I knew where those fault lines were in our community and what people needed. It’s not enough to just translate a press release—we need to find a holistic approach to informing folks. And I had a pretty decent following right away. When I started building the website, I think we had maybe like 2,000 followers, but we were growing rapidly. We were the fastest-growing Latino media outlet across the state, and now we’ve grown to over 12,000 followers on Facebook alone. But what’s more important is that we engage directly with people. They are letting me know that they trust the information we’re providing, and that has helped us grow tremendously. CP: How do you balance your two roles in the community as an advocate and as a journalist, especially during the pandemic? Soto: It happened out of necessity. I would love to just be a journalist and do the standard things we are taught — but what is unbiased journalism? Right after college, I worked for the media, and there was this idea that my lived experience and the lived experiences of people in that market were not getting told because they would be considered biased. But is it really biased to share information that is lived experience? There’s a lot of value to that, so the idea that we have to balance life experience for the sake of calling it “unbiased journalism” is kind of ridiculous. When I’m informing folks, I am informing them of the immigrant living experience, and people find it uncomfortable because they aren’t open to understanding how undocumentedd immigrants in South Carolina, a deep-red state, function. But I’m simply advocating for policies that make our community safer.

Officers detained a downtown man under suspicion of shoplifting, but questioning yielded mixed results, as the suspect rambled about necrophilia and government corruption. Police reported the man was likely not in a sound state of mind. RUNNERS UP During a routine traffic stop a West Ashley man admitted to having marijuana in his car, and when asked if he had any “harder” drugs inside, the man said that was a pretty low bar, as marijuana is just a bunch of leaves. A West Ashley man pulled over for suspected driving under the influence admitted to drinking “more than …” before trailing off. But police noted technically any amount of drinking is criminal. During a traffic stop after smelling what the reporting officer described as the smell of “fresh marijuana,” the officer explained that he knows the smell of weed due to his training and experience, and for no other reason at all. That doesn’t sound suspicious. By Skyler Baldwin Illustration by Steve Stegelin The Blotter is taken from reports filed with Charleston Police Department between Aug. 17 and Aug. 31.

OPINION

Could basic income work in Charleston? By Clay Middleton

Championed by Michael Tubbs, the former mayor of Stockton, California, in recent years universal basic income has gained traction across the country. Here in South Carolina, Columbia recently announced a pilot program aimed to stimulate the household incomes of fathers in the city in partnership with the Midlands Fatherhood Coalition. Will Charleston explore this? The answer may come down to sheer political will and the support of those who likely don’t understand the concept and disregard it as “universal welfare.” As we continue to see disparity in plain view and better understand the systemic needs and challenges faced by the working poor and our seniors, we have the opportunity to take bold action and make progress in decreasing poverty levels in the Holy City. Local governments can leverage public dollars and private resources to decrease poverty, provide upward mobility and truly have more unity in the community we all claim to love and embrace.

Federal pandemic relief through the American Rescue Plan has empowered cities like Alexandria, Virginia; St. Louis, Missouri and others to implement versions of universal basic income programs that target $500 a month to specific households. This, in addition to the expanded child tax credit, immediately transforms most vulnerable families and communities. My mother, a single parent of one who worked not one but three jobs to support us, was doing her best to make ends meet throughout my childhood. Put simply, a guaranteed income of $500 a month would have meant she could have quit one of her three jobs. As I think about what that extra money and time on my mother’s hands could have meant for me as her child, I consider it even more important for what such time and stability means today. Leveraging federal dollars with private funding can provide a viable pathway for piloting a guaranteed income program in Charleston — right now. Whether for hospitality workers, single parents, those living below the poverty line, those experiencing homelessness, senior citizens or even specific neighborhoods. An additional $500 each month can cover a student loan payment. It can cover the cost of needed car repairs, provide childcare or make rent. It can make food security in a household a guarantee rather than questionable. Five-hundred dollars

Guaranteed income is proven to lower anxiety and depression and improve overall quality of life and wellness.

per month is a tutor, youth recreation activities, school supplies, clothes, medicine, fresh food and vegetables and so much more. Since funds don’t have to be spent right away, an extra $500 can go toward a down payment, an emergency fund or savings if one’s work is seasonal. Perhaps most notably, guaranteed income is proven to lower anxiety and depression and improve overall quality of life and wellness. Furthermore, guaranteed income does not encourage people not to work. In fact, participants have increased their full-time employment due to the stability provided to seek better employment. A guaranteed income doesn’t ensure better life outcomes or better family dynamics. But it does offer a tangible, immediate solution to a household’s financial insecurity. Guaranteed income can be the bridge people need right now. It’s easy for us to brush off guaranteed income as a moonshot concept with no feasibility. But if other cities, elected leaders and even private corporations are making this investment in their backyard, why not Charleston? With the right leadership, the answer is always yes.

AT HOME IN THE LOWCOUNTRY

Michelle Mapp believes in public service By Eric Johnson

Longtime community development advocate Michelle Mapp has a sixth sense that sees inequality and injustice in the Charleston area. But these skills did not fully develop until the North Charleston resident was an adult with her own children.

Her philosophy is simple, but bold: “Do justice. Love mercy. Walk humbly.” As a child, Mapp developed a love for reading. After years of training and schooling to develop a keen eye for language, she is now doing what she can to make a bigger difference in the Charleston community. “As a direct descendant of South Carolina’s Gullah Geechee people, I believe I owe a debt to my ancestors and an obligation to my descendants to leave a more equitable and just South Carolina,” Mapp said.

Digs 09.08.2021

Mapp has a lot on her plate from day to day. The recent graduate of the Charleston School of Law spent the summer studying to take the state bar examination. Now, she’s working on a new project to help people not lose their homes. Mapp understands the benefit of having a place to call your own — it’s something she personifies in her work, helping people remain in their homes. Her favorite place to sit back and relax is on the front screened porch of her home in North Charleston. It provides the perfect protection from summer bugs and heat. Mapp grew up in a racially diverse area in North Charleston along with other military families. In her eyes, it was a traditional upbringing. After graduating from Gordon H. Garrett High School, she got a not-so-subtle nudge from her father. “You’re not going to make any money being a journalist,” she recalled him saying. “You’re really good at science and math, you should really look into engineering and something different.” So she did, earning a bachelor’s degree in engineering from Clemson University. Throughout Mapp’s life, she moved around the world. After being born in Bad Kreuznach, Germany, she moved as an adult to cities like San Antonio, Texas, Washington, D.C., and Fort Bragg in eastern North Carolina. But she always returned to the Lowcountry, an area she says she didn’t understand the importance of until later.

Mapp enjoys relaxing on the porch of her North Charleston home.


A cultural trustee

THE LOWDOWN ON MICHELLE MAPP

“I don’t know that I had a real appreciation for the history in Charleston when I was in school,” said Mapp, who considers herself a trustee for Charleston’s culture. The community holds a special place in her heart. But at some point, something changed. It just wasn’t the same place she remembered. “People who may have lived in San Francisco or New York are now moving to Charleston,” she said, referring to the area as “Silicon Harbor” because of the technological innovations and investments going on in the city.

Age: 52. Birthplace: Bad Kreuznach, Germany. Education: B.S. in Engineering Analysis, Clemson University, M.S. in Engineering Management, George Washington University; MPA, College of Charleston; J.D., Charleston School of Law. Current profession: Equal Justice Works Fellow, ACLU of South Carolina.

A continuing focus on public service

Past professions of interest: CEO, high school math teacher, consultant, trainer, operations research analyst. Family: Husband, Marquette Mapp; two children. Pes: Asher, a Yorkie. Something people would be surprised to learn about you: I am an introvert. Favorite thing besides your family and profession: Reading. Photos by Rūta Smith

sparked her interest in community development when Mapp realized a successful venture or organization needs capital, policy and a solid foundation to serve residents in the community. Mapp wanted to get into law because she felt like creating policy and applying it is one of the best ways to serve and protect residents. “I wanted the world to be a better place for everyone’s children,” she said, adding that she feels her talents would be best working directly with the community.

Leaving no one behind

Now living and working in her hometown, Mapp said she is afraid African Americans in the area are being left behind. “It is such a rich history for African Americans in Charleston. And it not only just shaped this place but shaped the country in that so many enslaved Africans were brought through Charleston. And so it’s like how do you ensure that the people who made this place what it is can afford to live here.” “Charleston is very much a contradiction in that it is known worldwide for its preservation of place, but in that same vein, we have not done, I feel, a good job at preservation of people,” Mapp said. Mapp will start a fellowship with Equal Justice Works in September, a Washington, D.C.-based. program that primes young lawyers for public service careers. Mapp will spend the next two years working with the American Civil Liberties Union of South Carolina to help prevent eviction and displacement of low-income and African-American households. According to a study by Princeton University’s Eviction Lab in 2016, North Charleston had one of the highest eviction rates in the nation. Attempting to stem the crisis, the state has set up a housing court pilot program in Charleston, a model popular in larger cities like New York. Mapp’s long-term career plans remain to-be-determined, but if her work matches her passion, don’t be surprised if Mapp continues in public service with a run for political office. She hasn’t ruled it out, she said.

What you learned in law school that surprised you: Many laws were enacted for public policy reasons — particularly laws related to property, planning and zoning — and those public policies were intended to maintain a racial and class hierarchy. Favorite family tradition: Ice cream from Park Circle Creamery after church on Sundays. Books on the bedside table: Hood Feminism by Mikki Kendall; Voices of Black South Carolina by Damon Fordham; and States’ Laws on Race and Color by Pauli Murray. Something that you have too much of at home: Storage containers. Favorite musicians: Anita Baker and Will Downing. Favorite food: Thai. Favorite dessert: Tiramisu. Favorite cocktail or beverage: Peach John Daly. Three people (alive or dead) you’d like to dine with: Ruth Johnson (maternal grandmother), James Baldwin and Toni Morrison. What meal would you want served to you for your last supper: Massaman curry. Five things you MUST always have in your refrigerator: Water, blueberries, eggs, half and half and cheese. Describe your best day in 50 words or less: The beach, an umbrella and a book. Your hero now: Nelson Mandela. Pet peeve: Poverty-shaming, particularly shaming of renters. Your advice for someone new to Charleston: Summerville is beachfront property.

charlestoncitypaper.com

As a new law graduate, Mapp plans to engage in public service, as suggested by the law school’s motto, “pro bono populi,” or “for the good of people.” But her new role isn’t her first with public service — the North Charleston native was an educator in the Charleston County School District in the early 2000s. After moving from Atlanta, Mapp joined South Carolina’s Program of Alternative Certification for Educators (PACE) and started to teach mathematics to high school students. PACE was established to enable well-qualified people without traditional teacher training to work in public schools based on their academic concentrations and coursework. During her three years in the classroom, Mapp saw firsthand the shortcomings of the public education system. “I very quickly realized that a lot of the challenges in the school. I was teaching in had less to do with what was happening in the school and a lot more to do with the neighborhood and community,” she said. While enrolled in a joint-degree program in 2004 between the University of South Carolina and College of Charleston to earn a master’s in public administration, she started interning with the statewide South Carolina Community Loan Fund, ultimately becoming its chief executive officer 13 years later.

DIGGING YOUR HEALTH

5 ways to boost your immune system From Staff Reports With the cold and flu season ahead, you might want to consider ways to boost your body’s immune system to protect it against illness and infection. Even though your immune system usually does its job automatically before you even know there’s a problem, you can give it a boost with habits that promote wellness and support immunity. Here are five suggestions that can help:

Eat healthy fruits and vegetables

Digs 09.08.2021

Flavonoids found in some fruits and veggies are a vital part of maintaining health. Flavonoids are found in colorful fruits and vegetables like cranberries and elderberries. When it comes to power foods, elderberries’ exceptional flavanol levels make them an immune system powerhouse. Especially important during cold and flu season, elderberries can also be enjoyed in a cup of warm tea for instant comfort. Check out local markets and vendors for elderberry syrup and other products.

16

sage can also be used to help stimulate the immune system and promote well-being.

Keep a regular sleep schedule

Sleep gives you an opportunity to recharge. This is when cellular regeneration and other healing is most efficient. Keeping a regular routine helps signal to your system that it’s time to rest so you can fall asleep easier and reap the whole-body benefits of a healthy sleep cycle. Some people take melatonin to promote better sleep. (Always consult with your doctor before adding a sleep aid.)

Reduce stress with outdoor activity

Keeping physically fit provides numerous health benefits. For example, reducing stress can result from something as easy as taking a walk outside. The sun’s ultraviolet rays also help your body produce vitamin D, which is important for your bones, blood cells and immune system, as well as helping to absorb and use certain nutrients. Yoga and mas-

Regular physical activity, like practicing yoga or walking, can help reduce stress levels.

Wash hands frequently

Because germs are rampant and easily carried from school to home, you can give your immune system a hand, literally, by frequently scrubbing away germs before they have the chance to attack. Last year as people washed hands more frequently than ever due to COVID-19 concerns, the rate of flu also fell — proof that something as easy as washing your hands several times a day can provide big benefits.

Rely on natural remedies

Modern, stressful lifestyles and exposure to environmental pollutants can put immune systems under pressure. However, some of your existing soothing rituals can actually support better health, too. One example is relaxing with a hot cup of tea made with blends of natural ingredients, such as mushrooms. While mushrooms may not be an obvious ingredient, they have been incorporated into healing practices for thousands of years for their immuneboosting, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich properties. There are several powerful medicinal mushrooms but one stand-out is the reishi mushroom, known as the “mushroom of immortality” and “divine plant of longevity.” This anti-inflammatory powerhouse is known to promote healthy cell growth and healthy blood pressure, along with improving immune function.

DIGGING LOCAL

Elderberry, the roadside plant that heals By Toni Reale, special to Digs Taking root along the roadside and growing out of ditches all around the Lowcountry, the American elderberry (sambucus nigra or sambucus canadensis), stands tall with its showy white lace doily-looking flowers in late spring and early summer, followed by its deep purple berry-looking fruit in late summer and early fall. This native plant may look like a nuisance weed to the passersby, but is actually an important healing plant.

Reale

Early human use

Throughout recorded human history, elderberry has served many purposes. The oldest evidence of the importance of this plant to humans is published in a National Academy of Sciences study that found elderberry remnants preserved in dental plaque dating from the Neolithic period (10,000 B.C.) through the Middle Ages. While it’s not clear what they used elderberry for from this study, it is evident that elderberry was an important part of their diet. Written evidence of elderberry comes from the “father of medicine,” Hippocrates, in 400 B.C. He wrote the plant was his “medicine chest,” useful for many ailments. More recent evidence shows Native Americans used the plant for nutrition, as well as pipes, fire starters, basket and animal-hide dyes and even blow guns.

American elderberries bloom in the late spring and produce berries at this time of year.

Medical uses

18

Although elderberry is considered an herbal supplement by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and no official FDA approval has been given to any application of the plant, many have found benefits to using elderberry. The plant’s drupes, or berry-like fruit, are most commonly dried and used to make a syrup. Honey, ginger and cinnamon are often added in the syrupmaking process to enhance the taste of the berries and also to naturally preserve the extract. Elderberry fruits are high in vitamins and minerals, such as potassium, vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium and antioxidants including anthocyanins and flavonoids. It’s an almost-magical plant that is touted to have anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory and other immunity-boosting benefits. Most people use an extract made from elderberry for things like building immunity in cold and flu season, and alleviating symptoms such as coughs and other respiratory ailments. Amanda McNulty with S.C. Public Radio’s “Making it Grow” reported that rubbing a cut elderberry stem on a wart removes it.

Identification of the plant

When foraging for this plant, it is important to properly identify before harvesting. The plants like to grow in open, sunny

locations. When the plant is in its flowering stage, its blooms (which are composed of many tiny flowers) are large, flat and white. The flower resembles a Queen Anne’s lace, but the elderberry flower is denser. Botanists call the flower of this plant a “perfect” flower because both male and female parts are present. If you look closely you’ll see that each tiny flower that is part of the larger bloom has five sepals, five petals, five stamen and one pistil. Each tiny flower that makes up the larger bloom will turn into a cluster of juicy drupes that when ripe can be used for the healing syrup, pies, jellies or even wine.

A Harry Potter nod to the elderberry The elder wand (made of elderberry wood) in the Harry Potter series, was the most powerful wand that had ever existed. Only the most powerful wizards who had conquered death were worthy of using the wand. Interestingly, this most magical wand was very plain looking, like the plant itself — unassuming yet magical.

The local arts scene is still strong and vibrant overall, despite challenges posed by the global pandemic, according to Jonathan Tabbert, artistic director and resident choreographer at Palmetto City Ballet (PCB). Even now, “You can find inspiring examples of multiple genres around town on any given weekend,” Tabbert said. “And we are extremely proud to represent professional ballet within the Charleston community.” In addition to a plethora of more traditional onstage programming that is set to unfold later this year, PCB will also premier a feature-length film, Why Our Walls, at the Terrace Theater Sept. 18, signaling a slight shift in energy for Tabbert’s group. Like it or not, COVID-19 has left its mark, which is why Kristin Alexander, artistic director for Annex Dance Company (ADC), said her organization is attempting to remain dynamic in light of the most recent public health concerns. “Last season we tried to maintain audience engagement through digital and virtual sharing,” she told the City Paper. “We filmed four virtual performances, including a virtual preview of Behind, Beyond, Between, that we were fortunate to be able to share at no cost to our audience members, as well as the company’s first dance film, Salt in the Soil, which was filmed at Botany Bay.” Alexander said this year, ADC will continue presenting virtual content in addition to live performances “presented with the safety of the company and audience at the forefront.” Lindy Fabyanic, founder of Dance Conservatory of Charleston, said her company remains cautious in 2021 but that ultimately, her vision remains the same as it ever was: to “combine the elite technical training of a preeminent American dance academy with the heart and accessibility of a community dance center.” Fabyanic told the City Paper she was initially inspired to take “the best and most worthwhile experiences” she had in her

Rūta Smith

Kristin Alexander (left) and Annex Dance Company got creative to continue producing during the pandemic training at the School of American Ballet and as a professional dancer with the San Francisco Ballet and New York City Ballet and infuse them into a studio here that would provide sufficient opportunities for young dancers to prepare them for a career in the arts and beyond. In keeping with that mission, this fall, Fabyanic’s primary focus will be on readying the conservatory’s annual performances of The Nutcracker, a show which boasts a cast of over 150 dancers, most of whom are students. With all the training, skill and talent that lies behind many larger productions, the world of dance can appear intimidating to an outsider. But anyone who thinks dance is an exclusive realm has never met Dance Lab owner Jenny Broe. Broe wholeheartedly believes that “every body” can and should dance. And for her at least, this idea is perhaps more relevant now than ever before. “Dancing is a healing thing,” Broe said. “It makes you feel alive.” That’s why she curates the Dance Lab studio as a space that is inclusive, accessible and non-competitive for everyone at all stages of their dance journeys. “We provide a home for some, a family for all, and a super-positive addition to everyone’s day-to-day life. Plus we do some dope, original shows to give dancers the thrill of being on stage, but mostly to transport the audience

out of their normal everyday world and into something unique and unpredictable.” To that end, Broe is pleased Dance Lab’s rescheduled presentation of Extraterrestrial will finally take place this weekend as a way of kicking off the new season. Still, Broe, who describes herself as a generally positive person, is being realistic about the situation at hand. “This has been an exhausting, terrifying and completely dark time for the arts — dance studios and companies in particular. It is so hard to dream about the future right now. We started to see the light a few months ago, just to get hit again, and I know we all feel it,” she said. Looking ahead, Stephany Walker, managing director at DanceFX, is clear about her hopes. “We will be holding auditions for our adult performance companies Sept. 11, and we definitely plan to resume our winter and spring concert performances. We also have plans to be involved with The Sustainability Institute, perform at various local events, as well as to take our annual trip to Athens, Georgia, to perform in DanceAthens.” Beyond that, Walker said, “We would love to see partnerships with more local businesses and outreach organizations … At DanceFX, we believe in the power that [visual] art has on communities, and our goal is to show our city the impact that dance can have.”

PechaKucha set for September Return PechaKucha returns Sept. 21 for the first time since 2020 at Charleston Music Hall.

‘Regenerative agriculture’ could positively impact climate change, local farmers say By Samantha Connors and Parker Milner The rise of “organic” and “sustainable” brands has made it increasingly difficult for consumers to discern one product claiming to be socially responsible from the next, diluting the meaning of the terms all together. But a new crop of farmers is trying to change the narrative by championing a practice they say could reverse climate change. “Regenerative agriculture” — a farming philosophy that uses plants, grazing animals and healthy soil to naturally sequester carbon — has become the farming industry’s latest buzzword, but a deeper dive shows that it’s a practice with specific guidelines, leading to significant backing in the local farming community due to its impact on the land and animals who call it home. The City Paper talked to the owners of three independently owned farms leading the regenerative movement.

Jeff Siewicki had no farming experience before moving to an 8-acre Wadmalaw Island property with his wife but decided to explore the possibility of raising chickens. After much research, he learned about regenerative farming’s positive environmental impact and decided to give it a go. Three years later, Siewicki runs Vital Mission Farm with a well-tested method of rotational agriculture that naturally pumps Photos by Rūta Smith organic matter — or decomposed plant and Vital Mission animal tissue — back into the soil. “Our mission is to grow food that’s healthy Farm owner Jeff Siewicki (right) for people, animals, land and the environrotates his ducks ment,” he said. “So, we’re also helping the land by putting carbon back into the soil and to a different part of the farm every reversing those climate change effects while 2-4 days building a habitat for wildlife.” Siewicki, who now raises ducks on his farm instead of chickens, has his system down pat. Eggs from full-grown ducks are kept for hatching. The ducklings stay in a temperature-controlled tent for the first 2-3 weeks of their

erative agriculture, practices the 59-yearold owner of the Winston-Salem, North Carolina, farm has researched for years. “Joyce Farms' Honest with Nature Regenerative Agriculture produces flavorful, nutritious proteins, while protecting animal welfare and contributing positively to the environment,” according to its website. Joyce “Regenerative agriculture is something that is very important to me,” Joyce told the City Paper. “Regenerative farming can absolutely reverse climate change. What we’re trying to do is get the message out for why this is important. Regenerative doesn’t mean the same thing to everybody, unfortunately. To us, it’s very serious and very important. We have a very strict definition — we don’t deviate from it.” Joyce follows these guiding principles at his regenerative farm that’s home to chickens, cows, pigs, ducks and turkeys: • Build soil health • Diversify plant life • Avoid tilling and chemical inputs • Integrate animals through adaptive, rotational grazing For Joyce, regenerative farming starts with the first principle — soil health, measured by the percentage of soil organic matter that makes up 3-6% of productive soils. He says he’s increased his soil’s organic CONTINUED ON PAGE 25

life. Then, they’re moved to another part of the property, where they live and grow in a 2,500-square-foot fenced outdoor area. Every 2-4 days, the ducks are moved to another area of land, where they eat grass and bugs and fertilize the soil with manure. When the grass has been eaten down to the ground, the root systems underneath release carbon, adding fertility back into the land. After another 5-6 weeks, the original grazing area has completely regrown, and the cycle begins again. “Everything starts with the soil,” Siewicki said. “If you don’t take care of your soil, you’re not going to be farming long. Farmers who use heavy tillage, chemical fertilizers and pesticides are just killing their soil and will have to stop farming or become heavily reliant on artificial fertilizers just to grow anything at all.” To put this process into perspective, factory farms cram some 15,000 chickens beak-to-beak in poultry houses. Even organically raised chickens are raised in similar circumstances — the only difference is that the animals are given organic feed and have access to a pint-sized 2-by2-foot outdoor area. “It’s not good for the animal, and it’s not good for the consumer,” Siewicki said. The ethical, environment and health implications of factory farming is a hotly debated topic, but for Siewicki, encouraging people to learn more about regenerative processes that support our environment and create a healthier outcome is vital. “If we took all the farmland, rangeland and grassland in North America and increased organic matter by 1%, we can completely sequester all the CO2 in the atmosphere back to pre-industrial levels and completely reverse all the damage that we’ve done,” he said.

Johnny Delaware reflects on his new heartland rock album, Zia, and the motivation behind songwriting

The Artisanals drop new album, Zia

Music 09.08.2021

“Something comes out of the guitar that is arbitrary, but that’s the best thing about creativity, pulling something out of the ether,” said rock musician Johnny Delaware. “You’re kind of like a sorcerer or sorceress — a magician. Like an alchemist, you can’t predict what can happen.” After departing from psych-folk group Susto in 2016, Delaware started Charlestonbased project The Artisanals, releasing its self-titled LP in 2018. Now the group has followed up with a new album, Zia, a tribute to the light-bending, desolate deserts of New Mexico and songwriting forays with vocalist/guitarist Clay Houle, who spearheads the musical direction with Delaware. Also heard on Zia are bassist Eric Mixon, drummer Nick Recio and keyboardist Ian Klin. The album was recorded in the winter of 2019 in Chase Park Transduction studios in Athens, Georgia. “It was basically an album made off of trying to manifest what you want in life,” Delaware said. “I can’t remember what a lot of the album was supposed to be about beyond that. I write a lot of songs on my

own, but it seems when I write songs with Clay, things come out in a special way. He’s very intuitive with music.” To Delaware, The Artisanals are a WestCoast-sounding band. He’s always been inspired by artists who came up out of San Francisco and Los Angeles’ Laurel Canyon in the ’60s and ’70s. He also loves classic songwriters like Gordon Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young. “Zia is stripped down. It has more acoustic elements with less production.” Besides Cheap Trick and Big Star rock ’n’ roll, Delaware has been listening to a lot of reggaeton and Mexican pop music, which may sound obscure if not for the fact that he moved to San Cristobal de Las Casas, Mexico, a year ago. “I experienced another pandemic. Where I lived is impoverished. People are worried about feeding their families. They don’t want to fight about who’s taking a vaccine and who’s not. They’re worried about how their kids are going to eat tomorrow,” he said. He lives in an indigenous part of Mexico populated by artisans who weave and craft rugs. “It’s heartbreaking — you see them trying to sell stuff and there’s bruises on their cheeks because they’re being beaten at home. Then on social media I see people up in their high rises ordering UberEats telling

everyone to mask up. Meanwhile, I’m in a whole other paradigm. In the perspective of everything in the world and on a musical level, I don’t get involved in politics.” The pandemic gave Delaware the revelation that there’s more to life than what your craft is. “I took a break from writing during COVID. I wanted a break. I wanted to step back. I got a little too involved with it,” he said. “With social media, it doesn’t help your mental state — you see people’s highlight reels and there’s a part of you subconsciously that gets jealous because you want success for your art too.” When Delaware took space away from writing music, he says he more clearly saw the tension between the practical and divine aspects of making songs. “You should do it because it comes from a higher place,” Delaware said. “‘Oh I’m a musician, I should probably write a song.’ That’s such a shitty role to have. How is good art going to come from that? It just woke me up.” With drums shattering and guitar licks sorrowfully stretched, the lyrics in The Artisanals’ new song, “Way Up,” leave you feeling wistful just like Zia itself: “Don’t wanna manifest pain. It’s already heavy and hard to move … I’m going way up. And I’m never going down.”

Brett Belanger Trio hosts steel pannist Jonathan Scales at Forte Lounge

The jazz outfit, Brett Belanger Trio will share the stage with steel pannist Jonathan Scales and his Fourchestra ensemble at 7 p.m. Sept. 15. The Belanger Trio is Jonathan Lovett on piano, Ron Wiltrout on drums and Brett Belanger on bass. “For the past few months, I’ve abandoned the setlist idea,” Belanger said. “I think the crowd picks up on the organic nature of it.” Scales music is complex and fun to listen to, Belanger said. “It’s groove-oriented,” he said. “And it’s not every day you get to see someone play a steel pan. It’s really a rare treat.” —CG

Manny Houston returns home to collaborate, celebrate

Manny Houston speculates on the future of jazz music ahead of his return to Charleston Music Hall see how they reshaped the songs. “In studying these tunes, I like to go back to people like Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and listen to all of the different versions they’ve done and how they’ve improvised around it,” he said. “When it is a ‘standard,’ there’s a set way of how things are going to go, but then you have fun with it.” Houston said he’s looking forward to returning to Charleston now that he’s making his dreams come true elsewhere. “Being able to come back to Charleston in 2021 and have some major accomplishments from the theater field under my belt, it makes me very happy because I’m not lying,” he said with a laugh. “I want to show the people that support me from a city that I love that I’m doing what I said I was going to do. The kid is actually kicking it in New York. So it means a lot.” —Vincent Harris See Jazz on Broadway starring Manny Houston at 8 p.m. Sept. 18. Tickets are $25-$62 available through Charleston Music Hall

Singer, dancer and pianist Manny Houston is in Chicago right now. He’s in the cast of the musical Kinky Boots, currently running at The Paramount Theater. “It’s a lot of fun,” Houston said. “You can tell that the audience is super excited to see live theater again. The Paramount apparently has the second-largest subscriber base in the United States, so the place has been packed every night just about.” Houston is basically living his dream. The College of Charleston grad left town in 2019 and moved to New York to pursue a career in musical theater, but he’ll be coming back Sept. 18 for a performance at the Charleston Music Hall. Houston will be teaming up with the Charleston Jazz Orchestra for a show called Jazz on Broadway. With Houston out front, and occasionally on piano, the ensemble will be taking on jazz-friendly showtunes from Porgy & Bess (“I Got Plenty Of Nothin’”) to My Fair Lady (“On the Street Where You Live” to Hamilton (“My Shot,” “Wait for It”) “We wanted to work our way through the actual jazz standards we play as jazz musicians,” Houston said. “A song like ‘On the Street Where You Live’ is a standard that you find in any real book that jazz musicians use for gigs. It’s just a standard jazz piece you can call out.” Of course, jazz musicians have been pulling from the songbooks of musicals for decades. Singers like Ella Fitzgerald and instrumentalists like Miles Davis spent large chunks of their careers doing it. And while The Lion King and Hamilton might not be considered “classics” on the level of West Side Story yet, Houston said they one day will be. Houston said to prepare for the show, he’s looking back at some classic interpreters to
