The National Park Service has rescheduled Anita Singleton-Prather’s performance at Charles Pinckney National Historic Site after the snowfall of February 12th made travel from Beaufort, South Carolina unsafe. The program will now be on Sunday, March 7 at 2:00 p.m. Following the Aunt Pearlie Sue outdoor performance, the video “The Language You Cry In” will be shown in the visitor center’s classroom. This free weekend event is part of the park’s annual Gullah Heritage Program series.
Charles Pinckney National Historic Site preserves a 28-acre remnant of Snee Farm, the lowcountry plantation of Charles Pinckney, a founding father and framer of the United States Constitution. Located at 1254 Long Point Road in Mount Pleasant, the park is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. except for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Days. There is no entrance fee. For more information, call (843) 881-5516.
