Many tourists visit the Charleston area every year, a great deal of which are seeking activities that are family friendly and highlight African American/Gullah-Geechie culture. Though there are tours that cover both interests, they are solely offered during the day, leaving visitors with nothing to do in the evening except to frequent the many bars and nightclubs. Currently there are no family friendly or African American/Gullah-Geechie activities offered in the evening in the Charleston area. Recognizing the lack of evening activities, Lady in White Production company has put together a weekly event entitled, When I First Remember.
This event begins with a stage play, using song, dance, music and dialog to highlight and tell the story of the inception of the Gullah-Geechie culture that is unique to the Low Country. The evening continues with a marketplace where attendees can meet the actors as well as purchase artisan crafts, goods and cuisine from local Gullah-Geechie vendors.
When I First Remember creates a fun-filled, family-friendly evening to be enjoyed by tourists and locals alike.
