Aunt Pearlie Sue and the Gullah Kinfolk will entertain with “Gullah Caribbean Christmas” Saturday, December 7 at 7 pm at Penn Center. in Beaufort, SC. The special event includes contemporary Christmas music, a bit of comedy, dancing and a Caribbean cuisine feast.
Aunt Pearlie Sue, the character developed by Anita Singleton Prather, is a nationally acclaimed storyteller, and her Gullah Kinfolk is a professional singing cast. Together they deliver messages of the Gullah culture of the South Carolina Sea Islands to bring history alive on stage.
Prather is an ordained minister, historian, teacher, musician, writer and story teller. She is known for her work preserving the Gullah culture through songs and stories and has toured the United State and Canada with her group of professional singers and musicians. Her performances employ an interactive technique that she believes offers audience members a deep experience as they are invited to become part of the Gullah story.
