MOUNT PLEASANT, S. C. (WCIV) -- As February comes to a close, there are still Black History Month celebrations you can take advantage of in the Lowcountry.

Every Saturday at 2 p.m., the Charles Pinckney Historical Site holds a series of free cultural programs centered around the history of the Gullah people.

The programs give park visitors a look into "a very difficult history through art and music," according to park ranger Carlin Timmons.

Those who attend will see craft demonstrations and also hear Gullah story-telling and folk tales.

The series is sponsored in part by the National Park Service and The Town of Mt. Pleasant will continue through March.
