The Legacy of Early African-Americans and the Gullah-Geechee People
During this seven-day workshop, explore the history and cultural legacy of Gullah-Geechee people. In partnership with various descendants, scholars, and heritage institutions, this program will focus on the Gullah-Geechee of the Lowcountry of South Carolina and Georgia, descendants of enslaved people from the West Coast of Africa. Their culture is distinctive and found only in the Lowcountry of the Southeast. By bringing their stories and cultures alive, and by uncovering uncomfortable realities, we aim to teach the power of solidarity.
