Photos of the Week
In honor of Black History Month, here are samples from a unique exhibit at the Historic Myrtle Beach Colored School Museum and Education Center. The display is the creation of Docshee Moore, a member of the Parks, Recreation and Sports Tourism Department. At one time, he set up the display each February at Mary C. Canty Recreation Center, but it now has a year-round home at the historic school. As you’ll learn when touring the museum, African Americans invented or improved golf tees, eye surgeries, smoke detectors, lawn sprinklers, stop lights and much more. Featured is Ron McNair, a South Carolina native and one of NASA’s first African American astronauts, who died in the Space Shuttle Challenger explosion. The contributions of many others who advanced science, art, history and more are part of the museum. To learn more, see the Historic Myrtle Beach Colored School Museum and Education Center webpage.
