Civil Rights Era Historic Marker Unveiling: S.H. Kress & Co.

Sunday, Aug 4, 2013 3:00p
S.H. Kress & Co. Charleston, SC

Once a five & dime store owned by S.H. Kress & Co., this 1930 art deco King Street landmark featured a lunch counter that became the target of Charleston’s first Civil Rights “sit-in.” Join us as we celebrate our third Modern Civil Rights Era site historic marker unveiling and reception to follow. Special guests include Minerva Brown King, one of the Burke High School students that was arrested after participating in the protest on April 1, 1960.
