Charleston’s history cannot be told without including the real lived stories of African Americans. This Black History Month, Enough Pie will highlight Black communities, community members and businesses that make the Charleston Peninsula unique, rich and culturally diverse. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Enough Pie has seen people of different backgrounds come together.
However, it’s no secret that the communities we serve are descendants of the Black diaspora, and it would take well over one month to share every conversation we’ve had, and person we’ve met. We have to start somewhere. Although we’re not historians, we want to share the perspectives of those who are not in the history books–the voices of our neighbors.
Over the next four weeks, we will share photos, videos, events and more on our social media platforms and website. Search the hashtag #CHSPenBlackHistory to follow along. We welcome you to join us on this journey, and share your stories of Black history from the Charleston Peninsula by using #CHSPenBlackHistory.
