They include the sixth annual “Freedom Rally,” by the Carolina African American Heritage Foundation, with most events in Myrtle Beach, including the return of “Carolina Has Talent – “A Musical Tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,” with performances by finalists 6-9 p.m. Saturday in Coastal Carolina University’s Johnson Auditorium, in the Wall College of Business, in the Conway campus. The winner takes home $1,500; second- and third-place contestants win $1,000 and $500, respectively.
