Active Adult Series: Charlie’s Place Premiere
The Active Adult Series at the Horry County Museum in Conway continues April 17 at 1 p.m. with the premiere of the new SCETV documentary Charlie’s Place. This film tells the story of an African American nightclub owned by Charlie Fitzgerald in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Despite the fact that much of the South was segregated during the time, both blacks and whites were welcomed into the club. This drew unwanted attention from groups like the KKK, who attacked Charlie’s Place one night in 1950. The film’s producer, Betsy Newman, will introduce the film. Free.
