The Richland Library Friends and Foundation is excited to announce Ansley Kamau Pope as recipient of the 2020 Ethel Bolden Minority Fellowship. He’s a graduate student in history at the University of South Carolina.
During his fellowship through May 2021, Pope is working virtually with Richland Library staff to develop community connections and identify resources to support local residents in several parts of Richland County, including: Lower Richland; Eastover; Gadsden and Hopkins. He’s also sharing updates with the Richland Library Friends and Foundation’s board.
In addition, Pope is receiving $3,500 in financial assistance. The fellowship encourages and provides support to students from underserved and underrepresented ethnic and racial groups who are working toward an undergraduate or graduate degree.
Originally established in 2010 as a scholarship, the fellowship recognizes Mrs. Ethel Bolden’s years of service to the Richland County community and its libraries.
