On Hilton Head Island in South Carolina, hundreds of people are gathering for the 11th annual Gullah Celebration. The original Gullah were African slaves that settled along the Atlantic coast. Gullah is also the name of the language that the people spoke and still speak today. Desiree Cooper had a chance to speak with Louise Cohen, a local Gullah storyteller.

    I am the Activities Director at Grace Living Center in Edmond, OK. Could I please have permission to copy this program so that I can play it for my residents at the nursing home for a cultural program? I would need an mp3 or similar format.

    Thank you!
