ANALYZING THE EVIDENCE: South Carolina Records

Though the South Carolina State Board of Health might issue other health-related documents, two of these records relate to the death of citizens. Death certificates are legal documents issued by medical or governmental officials.

The font, layout, and writing style of the third document are indications that it was cut from a newspaper.




Major corporate funding for African American Lives 2 and its outreach initiatives is provided by The Coca-Cola Company and Johnson & Johnson. Additional corporate funding is provided by Buick.
