According to HCDP Chair and community activist Bennie Swans, “Far too often, African-Americans in Horry County have negative experiences in many areas of life.  We want to identify the top concerns so that strategies can be developed and the community as a whole can work to see real change take place.”

Swans cited the following areas as particularly troublesome: Education; Politics; Jobs/Economic Disparities; Prison Reform/Judicial Sentencing; Community Violence/Victims of Crimes; Black Biker Week (Memorial Day Weekend); and more.

NAACP-Myrtle Beach President Mickey James will co-host the event with Mr. Swans.

The Town Hall starts at 7:00 pm at the Mary C. Canty Recreation Center, 921 Canal Street in Myrtle Beach.

For further information, contact Rev. Jerry Faulk at (843)248-9390 or Mr. Mickey James at (843)340-2018.
