did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT ORANGEBURG?
  1. Orangeburg, also known as "The Garden City," is the principal city in and the county seat of Orangeburg County, South Carolina.The city is also the fifth oldest city in the state of South Carolina. The greater city population was 67,326 at the 2010 census.

  2. In 2007, Orangeburg hosted the first Democratic U.S. presidential candidate debate at Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium on the campus of South Carolina State University.

  3. In the 1960s Orangeburg was a major center of Civil Rights Movement activity involving students from both Claflin College and South Carolina State College and residents of Orangeburg's Black community. When economic retaliation was used against local Blacks seeking school integration in 1956, students came to their support with hunger strikes, boycotts, and mass marches. In 1960, over 400 students were arrested on sit-ins and integration marches organized by CORE.

  4. In August 1963, the Orangeburg Freedom Movement (OFM) chaired by Dr. Harlowe Caldwell of the NAACP, submitted 10 pro-integration demands to the Orangeburg Mayor and City Council. After negotiations failed, mass demonstrations similar to those that occurred in Birmingham resulted in more than 1,300 arrests. On February 8, 1968, after days of protests against a segregated bowling alley, violence broke out on the South Carolina State campus,(actually by bowling alley not school grounds) between police and Black students. Police opened fire on a crowd of students, killing Samuel Hammond, Henry Smith, and Delano Middleton, and wounding 27 others in what became known as the "Orangeburg Massacre.

  5. The median income for a household in the city was $30,306, and the median income for a family was $37,008.

  6. Events and attractions:  The IP Stanback Museum & Planetarium, named for the first African-American chairman of the University's Board of Trustees, Israel Pinkney Stanback, had its origin in the basement of the then South Carolina State College's library in the early 1970s. The Museum and Planetarium is located on the campus of South Carolina State University and signifies their commitment to community service. The Museum's exhibition area is one of the largest in the state.
