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.
This week's programs include:
Sharon & Frank Murray: Rice Production Demonstration
Dorothy Montgomery: Quilting Demonstration
Vera Manigault: Sweetgrass Baskets Demonstrations
Charles C. Williams: Castnet Making & Woodworking Demonstrations
