Heritage Days at Penn Center
The 28th Annual Heritage Days celebration (brochure) at Penn Center starts next week.
Study Gullah culture up close and personal. There will be demonstrations of basketry, net-making, hair braiding, and bateau making that are part of a cultural legacy rooted in West Africa. Learn how to trace your family tree. Entertainment includes the Darien County Gullah Shouters, the Ujimaa African Dancers, and Aunt Pearlie Sue.
