Learning Lab One at the Wall Lowcountry Center
Those who pay attention as they are driving on Highway 17 in the Pawleys Island area may have noticed the ruins of an old motel behind a fence and a street sign saying "Old Beach Road." That is what is left of McKenzie Beach, once a popular and well-known vacation resort. But what made it important then was that it was a beach for African-Americans at a time when direct access to the Atlantic oceanfront in the Jim Crow South was extremely limited.
"McKenzie Beach Memories - Art by Natalie Daise" is made up of paintings that have been used as the illustrations for the book "McKenzie Beach Memories," published by CLASS Publishing and available in September.
In the Wall Lowcountry Center Learning Lab One, September 5 - October 15, 2020, from 12:00 - 4:30 p.m.
