Pearlie Harris honored on downtown Greenville mural

Ms. Pearlie Harris worked as an educator for over 32 years. She was a pioneer in the state’s school system, serving as the only Black teacher at an all-white school, except for one Black child, until Greenville county formally integrated in 1970. After overcoming years of discrimination from parents and students, Harris persevered and ultimately touched the lives of countless children in the Greenville area. This week it was revealed Harris, along with several present-day students, were part of a permanent photo-realistic mural on the façade of Canvas Tower in downtown Greenville.
