Summer in the South is not complete without a trip to the beach. Scenic views, marshland, and Spanish moss are the hallmark of a southern coast. We all have memories of oyster roasts, crabbing, sun bathing and warm waters with our family and today we are sharing some of our favorite African American Beach Portraits that bring us down memory lane.
