Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Music and Stories
We will have a special treat every hour on the hour during the 2021 Southport Plein Air Festival, thanks to a grant from the Brunswick Arts Council. Master storyteller Anita Singleton-Prather, “The First Lady of Gullah,” will perform as Aunt Pearlie Sue, a character inspired by her Sea Islands grandmother, with folktales and songs highlighting the influence of Gullah culture in our region.
Her stories will be supported by literature and maps illustrating the efforts currently underway to expand the federally designated Gullah-Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor through Brunswick County, courtesy of the Brunswick County NAACP. Project head Brayton Willis will be on hand to answer questions.
