Octavia Mitchell from WCBD and Thomasena Stokes-Marshall, Mount Pleasant Town Council Member and President of the Sweetgrass Cultural Arts Festival Association welcomed and presented “Winnowing Hands”, a beautiful, big bronze sculpture in the Oakland Plantation Shopping Center in Mount Pleasant, SC.

Almost 3 years of planning went into this dream, honoring sweetgrass weaving heritage and Gullah – Geechee culture.

More than 150 people joined Mayor Harry H. Hallman, Congressman and super delegate James E. Clyburn, NPS Gullah Geechee Heritage Corridor Coordinator Michael Allen and others as Tex Small unveiled the sculpture. Winnowing Hands was created by sculptor Shirley McWorter-Moss, who was on hand and shared some nice words.
