The Beaufort Inn would like to welcome Aunt Pearlie Sue and invite the community to come out and hear her Gullah Stories. For prime front row seats, make this an all inclusive Beaufort Inn experience by reserving a stay at The Beaufort Inn. 

Located in the heart of Historic Downtown Beaufort, The Beaufort Inn spans an entire city block and each room on property creates a unique experience for guests.  

There is much history throughout Beaufort, SC and Aunt Pearlier Sue will be coming to The Beaufort Inn on Monday November 13, November 20, December 4, and December 11 at 6:30pm. The event will be free of charge and open to the public. Guests can expect to gather in one of The Beaufort Inn's lush garden courtyards while being entertained by Aunt Pearlie Sue!

Aunt Pearlie Sue is the creation of Anita Singleton-Prather, a native of the Sea Islands in Beaufort County, South Carolina. Based on her grandmother, Aunt Pearlie Sue’s character has entertained audiences with Gullah-flavored folktales for over 10 years. In addition to being a storyteller, Prather is an educator, singer, actress and historian. She is the founder and a member of the musical performance group the Gullah Kinfolk. As a storyteller and singer, Prather has performed at many festivals, including the Spoleto USA international arts festival in Charleston. She has appeared in the Hollywood film Forrest Gump and on Christmas Across America on the Food Network Channel.
