Gullah advocate and storyteller Anita Singleton-Prather of Beaufort will be honored May 8 by the S.C. General Assembly with the Jean Laney Harris Folk Heritage Award.
The ceremony takes place midday in the House of Representatives. The public is invited to the ceremony and to an informal reception afterward in the Campus Room on the first floor of the Capstone House at the University of South Carolina.
The award was created by the legislature in 1987 to recognize lifetime achievement in the folk arts. The awards are coordinated by the S.C. Arts Commission and McKissick Museum at USC.
