  • Time: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

From Rosenwald and colored schools, to historic churches and slave cabins, the African American footprint in Horry and Georgetown counties is broad and significant. It is also often hidden in plain sight. Join members of the SC African American Heritage Commission as they help rediscover these historic gems through the Green Book of South Carolina, an online travel guide to historic markers and sites associated with African American heritage. Project leaders Dawn Dawson-House of the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism, and Jannie Harriot of the South Carolina African American Heritage Foundation, will lead the discussion.
