Museum Matinees: Over Here, The Homefront During World War I

The 2017 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with Over Here: The Homefront During World War I. This film, part of the Carolina Stories Series by SCETV, examines why African-Americans supported the war effort and how they were disappointed by the response to their efforts; women’s roles and how the war played a part in the women’s movement; military camps and what they meant for South Carolina cities; and how the influenza epidemic in 1918 impacted the state. The free film will be shown May 31 at 1 p.m. at the Horry County Museum in Conway.
