Museum Matinees: Jail, No Bail
Jul 5 @ 1:00 pm – 1:30 pm

The 2017 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with Jail, No Bail, part of the Carolina Stories Series produced by SCETV. On January 31, 1961, black students from Friendship Junior College in Rock Hill, SC walked into McCrory’s, sat at the lunch counter, and ordered hamburgers and soft drinks. They were denied service and asked to leave. After refusing to leave, the students were arrested for trespassing and processed. This 30 minute program pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the ‘Friendship Nine’ sit-in protest that inspired the Jail, No Bail Movement, a strategy which turned the tables on the establishment and reinvigorated the National Civil Rights Movement.

The film is free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, July 5th, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.

The Horry County Museum Documentary Film Matinees will continue throughout 2017. For a full list of films, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org. For more information, call the Horry County Museum at 843-915-5320 or e-mail [email protected]
