Charlie’s Place Wins Emmy

A PBS/ETV documentary on Myrtle Beach’s Charlie’s Place has won a coveted Emmy Award.

SChumanities.org says, Charlie’s Place tells an important story of race relations in South Carolina and the history of popular music. The owner of the nightclub Charlie’s Place, Charlie Fitzgerald, welcomed blacks and whites to his club, where they danced and listened to music together, defying segregation. Many popular black dances of the era found a white following there, including the famous Myrtle Beach dance, the shag.

This isn’t the only accolade for “Charlie’s Place.” In May, the program received a bronze Telly award in the history category. For more information on “Charlie’s Place,” click here.
