Mosquito Beach: A Civil Rights Era Story of Segregation, Entrepreneurship and Resiliency

Join historians Michael and Latanya Allen and Brittany Lavelle Tulla as they share their research into the history of an iconic Lowcountry place, and the ongoing work.  Mosquito Beach, part of the Sol Legare community on James Island, was recently listed as a National Register Historic District.  In the mid-20th century it was a popular recreational venue and refuge for African Americans, who otherwise lived in the shadow of Jim Crow segregation.

If you are not part of Historic Charleston Foundation’s Friends program and will be attending the lecture under the General Public category and you would like to make a donation, please add the amount (suggested donation is $10/person) on the next screen. Thank you.
