(Orangeburg) - Claflin wants to be policy center for African-American issues

Claflin University is aiming to carve out a niche for itself as a premier center for the study of Southern African-American history.

To build the institute, the Orangeburg school's leaders say they'll recruit a dozen young and promising academics.

Claflin founded a think tank that is the first of its kind among the state's historically black colleges that will seek to become a voice in policy decisions affecting Southern blacks.

Brian Johnson of Durham, North Carolina, has been named executive director of the Jonathan Jasper Wright Institute for the study of Southern African American History, Culture and Policy.
