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 p.m. during the month of March 2013. Charles Pinckney, a principal author and signer of the United States Constitution, owned seven plantations. Enslaved Africans and African Americans on Lowcountry plantations developed a unique culture known collectively today as "Gullah." Gullah people made significant contributions not only to the Lowcountry plantation system but also to American culture in general. A remnant of his Lowcountry plantation, Snee Farm, is preserved today as Charles Pinckney National Historic Site. These Gullah programs range from craft demonstrations such as quilting, cast-net making, wood-working and sweetgrass basket sewing to cooking, African drumming and story-telling, folk-tales, spirituals and other musical performances.
