A Lowcountry native, Miriam Green is immersed in the Gullah traditions and culture. As Mayor of Awendaw, a small coastal town in the Lowcountry, and owner of Buckshot’s in McClellanville, a restaurant favored by locals, Mayor Green is a strong advocate for the preservation of the Gullah Geechee culture. Join her for fascinating insight into how the Gullah Geechee people have influenced the Lowcountry culture from art to history to food…and be sure to ask her about her highly acclaimed okra purloo!
