In the era of segregation, African-Americans had few options when it came to enjoying the beautiful waters of our coastal home. Fortunately, the place they did have was Seabreeze. And from it’s birth at the turn of the century to it’s ultimate demise after decades of revelry, Seabreeze has been the center of many amazing stories, a lifeline for it’s residents and the spot where many a carefree day was spent. This multi-media piece, crafted from the tales of those that were there, celebrates the storied history of this cultural touchstone.
