Across the globe, peaceful protests have taken place in support of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Myrtle Beach is no exception. Hundreds of locals gathered in Grand Park at The Market Common to speak out against injustice for the death of George Floyd. Officials, including Mayor Brenda Bethune and Myrtle Beach Police Chief Amy Prock, joined organizers at the Sunday afternoon event.
If you were unable to safely join protesters, there are still many options for how to get involved. You can directly donate to the cause using the Black Lives Matter online forum. In order to directly support the Myrtle Beach Black community, Travel Noire has adopted a list of Black-owned restaurants you can directly support.
Alongside the Food and Bev industry, there are many ways to support the movement. By sharing content from Black creators and educating yourself using online resources, you can help fight racial injustice. The easiest being signing petitions that call against systematic racism.
There are many ways to get involved globally and locally. We urge you to join as we fight to dismantle the injustice instilled against the Black community.
