Located in one of the Palmetto State's most picturesque regions, Georgetown County is a beautiful coastal county full of rich African- American traditions and a distinct Gullah heritage, from its roots in the antebellum South to the present. An integral part of the identity of the Lowcountry, the black community has played a prominent role in the successful development of the county over the years, and this volume serves to highlight and celebrate the county's people and their achievements, highlighting recognizable citizens and families, both prominent and everyday.

In Georgetown County, South Carolina, author Ramona La Roche has compiled a wide array of unique photographs and images, matched with informative research, capturing black life throughout the area, from the early farms and plantations to the local businesses in downtown Georgetown to the many churches and schools that dot the county's landscape. This is a wonderful journey into the county's history and a fitting testament to the black community's contributions, which have helped to shape the special character of Georgetown County.
