Daughters of the Dust

March 6, 7:00 PM

Free

At the dawn of the 20th century, a family in the Gullah community—former West African slaves who adopted many of their ancestors’ Yoruba traditions—of coastal South Carolina suffers a generational split. Young Haagar (Kaycee Moore) wants to move to the mainland away from tradition-bound matriarch Nana (Cora Lee Day). Former prostitute Yellow Mary (Barbara-O) gets a cold shoulder when she returns to the island with her female lover, especially from her sister Viola (Cheryl Lynn Bruce). Sponsored by the Center for the Arts and Humanities.
