Presented by Donald Sweeper.
**Donald Sweeper requests an additional honorarium to the $250 contributed by SC Humanities.
This is a 45-minute one-man show in which Donald Sweeper tells stories shared to him by his ancestors and the elderly people from the community in which he grew up. This performance also includes Gullah folklore and traditions, as well as rites of passages performed by many of the African American Churches from Reconstruction up to the early 1970s. Donald Sweeper will also translate Gullah to English for the audience. As a demonstration, he reads scriptures from the New Testament Gullah Bible.
