A True Likeness. Part of the Carolina Stories Series by SCETV

June 26 @ 1:00 pm

The 2024 Horry County Museum Documentary Film Series continues with A True Likeness. Part of the Carolina Stories Series by SCETV, this 30 minute film tells the story of Richard Samuel Roberts, a little-known African American photographer from South Carolina whose posthumous discovery transcended stereotypes and brought to light a significant legacy. Heralded as one of the south’s most accomplished photographers of the 1920’s and 1930’s, Roberts was a self-taught artist who was determined to become a master portrait maker, with every image a true likeness of the subject. But for more than 40 years after his death his work remained lost to all but his family and friends.

The film is free to the public and will be shown at 1:00 PM, Wednesday, June 26th, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.

The Horry County Museum Documentary Film Matinees will continue throughout 2024. For a list of films, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org. For more information, call the Horry County Museum at 843-915-5320 or e-mail hcg.museum@horrycountysc.gov.
