Storyteller, Anita Prather, better known as Aunt Pearlie Sue invites children of all ages to participate in experiencing the Gullah folk traditions! Through oral stories, arts and crafts, and interactive presentations, Aunt Pearlie Sue is sure to educate and entertain!

The Gullah are a distinctive group of African Americans whose origins lie along the coasts of South Carolina and Georgia, as well as the adjacent sea islands. They live in small farming and fishing units, having formed a tightly knit community that has survived slavery, the Civil War, and the emergence of modern American culture.
