GET YOUR TICKETS! localfolksmovingspokes-civicaction.eventbrite.com Local Folks, Moving Spokes is a collaborative event series presented by Lowcountry Local First and Charleston Moves. Taking place 1 week from local elections, our event on November 1 is geared toward the importance of local civic action. By thoughtfully electing our leaders, we can realize a Charleston that aligns with our vision to support local business and actualize equitable transportation for our region. We aim to make this event (as part of a quarterly series) topical and engaging, bringing you a fresh look at those who are energizing our political landscape. This event will be an intimate conversation between Toby Smith, candidate for the 2015 mayoral race, and Marvin Pendarvis, Democratic primary winner for State House of Representatives, District 113. Grab your bike and meet us at St. Julian Devine Community Center for the discussion. Following, we'll pedal over to Redux Contemporary Art Center for a social hour, one-on-one Q&A with our speakers and a look at their latest exhibit by Kate Hooray Osmond. The event has a limited capacity and your ticket includes wine at Redux. Additional bike parking will be provided at both locations. If you'd like to ride Holy Spokes Charleston Bike Share, there is a station conveniently located a couple blocks from St. Julian Devine at Hampstead Square (corner of America and Columbus). Schedule: Doors Open @ St. Julian Devine: 5:45pm Discussion with Speakers: 6 — 6:30pm Bike Ride from St. Julian Devine to Redux: 6:45 — 7:15pm Social Hour, Q&A + Art Exhibit @ Redux: 7:15 — 8:30pm A huge thanks to St. Julian Devine Community Center and Redux Contemporary Art Center for hosting us, and to Cellar Experience for sponsoring beverages!

Kevin Eberle is a law professor at the Charleston School of Law, but his real love is Uptown history. Since moving to the neighborhood more than 20 years ago, his interest in Uptown history has evolved from an interest to a hobby to an obsession. He first wrote about Uptown history as the neighborhood president of Hampton Park Terrace when he needed material to fill a monthly newsletter. A year later, his research on the namesake of Hampton Park was turned into “The History of Hampton Park,” an authoritative source for all things related to Charleston’s best park. He has led tours of the Uptown for both the Preservation Society of Charleston and the Historic Charleston Foundation. In his free time, he enjoys working on his c. 1914 house and maintaining 2 old cars.
