Sharon The Gullah Lady Cooper-Murray presented on Gullah culture
On Feb. 23, the Humanities Council of South Carolina, in conjunction with the Bethlehem Missionary Baptist Church, Lugoff sponsored a Black History Program featuring Sharon "The Gullah Lady" Cooper-Murray presented on Gullah culture as the guest presenter. Focusing on the program’s theme "Embracing Our Heritage," Cooper-Murray was able to elaborate on the rich legacy of South Carolinians by exemplifying her knowledge of the Gullah culture through storytelling. The members of BMBC welcomed her by sponsoring an extravagant African art and book display.
