ROOTS IN THE RIVER: THE STORY OF CONGAREE NATIONAL PARK
Roots in the River chronicles the history of the Palmetto States national landmark. From the initial attempts to harvest the forests massive virgin cypresses in the 1890s through the grass-roots struggles of the 1970s to preserve it; to its classification as a National Park in 2003, the hour-long program is a sweeping look at the breathtaking ecosystem of champion trees, primeval landscapes and diverse plant and animal life in Lower Richland County. The show also features scenes from a recent reunion of the young team of activists from the 1970s that banded together to save the Congaree Swamp.

Through interviews with park preservationists, residents of Lower Richland County, park staff, local environmentalists, and archival as well as present-day footage, the program also examines the powerful story of race and social equity in the historic predominantly African-American community.
