John Fowler blends his powerful storytelling and traditional musical talents to share the interesting life-story of one of South Carolina’s famous and elusive turn-of-the-century African Americans. Through captivating performances, he weaves the history and folklore of the life of George Mullins. Fowler tells two tales: the story of Trotting Sally, an infamous street musician; and the real man few knew — George Mullins, who was born into slavery and built a new life as a free man, brick by brick. The presentation is based on Fowler’s book Trotting Sally: The Roots and Legacy of a Folk Hero. This presentation is not just a lecture — Fowler uses rare visual imagery, storytelling, and 19th century music during his presentation. The presentation is great for everyone. RSVP is NOT necessary, but a general headcount is helpful! acmrsvp@andersoncountysc.org
