Myrtle Beach 23 Summer 2016 | HTCinc.net “Like the Waccamaw, cultural memory is always in the process of potential alteration and reinvention, and it can produce churning countercurrents: differing accounts that might challenge the authority of a stuffy, official historical tradition,” says Turner. “Although we often like to accentuate the positive and mute out the negative, regional memory includes all kinds: the good, the bad, and the ugly. But, even the contested areas of collective memory — those hot-button issues from the past over which different groups disagree — ultimately can help to uncover underlying cultural values and expectations.” Despite those disagreements, one thing is clear: Conway is a town with roots in the Waccamaw. Like its past, the area’s present-day activities are shaped by the river. There are fishermen puttering along in their johnboats, seeking dinner or simply some peace and quiet; families soaking up the Carolina sun and each others’ company; college students embarking on a group kayak adventure — giving a whole new meaning to the term “immersion course.” From its procession of cypress knees to its unnerving beauty, the Waccamaw River serves as a gracious hostess, forever connecting our history, our present lifestyle and our future.
