Active Adult Series: Charlie’s Place Premiere

The monthly Active Adult Series at the Horry County Museum will continue on April 17th at 1:00 PM 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. Join us for an introduction by the film’s producer, Betsy Newman, followed by the premiere of the new documentary. Charlie’s Place is made possible in part by Humanities SC, the ETV Endowment, the City of Myrtle Beach, Burroughs and Chapin, Myrtle Beach Rotary Club, and the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce.

The program will be held at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street, Conway SC. This series is free and open to the public, seating will be available. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email hcgmuseum@horrycounty.org. To view a full list of programs and events at the Museum, visit www.horrycountymuseum.org.
