Documentary Film: Charlie’s Place
The 2022 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with the SCETV documentary, Charlie’s Place. This 30 minute 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 free screening starts at 1 p.m., Wednesday, June 1.
