Celebrate Gullah Heritage! The National Park Service, in partnership with the Town of Mount Pleasant,
is sponsoring a series of free cultural programs at Charles Pinckney National Historic Site
every Saturday at 2:00 pm during March 2013.

The Gullah people of the lowcountry preserve a culture rich in African elements.
Programs range from craft demonstrations such as quilting, cast-net making and sweetgrass basket sewing
to cooking, African drumming and story-telling, folk-tales, spirituals and other musical performances.

Sharon & Frank Murray: Rice Production Demonstration
