Winthrop came up with a great idea to get students to attend some of these great events - each semester they are required to have a certain number of 'cultural events' under their belts and this was one of them, so it was a pretty full house.
Meanwhile, I recently learned something quite interesting about Winthrop. It turns out there's a saying here: "The path to the White House goes through Winthrop University." And it seems to be true. Several of the candidates and all of the recent Presidents have indeed come through Rock Hill and spoken at Winthrop University over the last few years. It makes for a very interesting place to be as we wind into this next election cycle!
Cups are available for purchase, at prices that pay the artists living wages (even so, the project is a labor of love and never broke even). Check them out at their website: THE DEMOCRATIC CUP.
