Remembering Black History Month: Pearl Fryar
Topiary artist Pearl Fryar didn't know what a topiary was when he set out to be the first African-American to win his town's Garden of the Month award in 1984. Today his 3 acre yard in Bishopville, S.C. is a tourist destination for visitors from around the world. Fryar is the subject of the documentary A Man Named Pearl.
