Exploring Gullah-Geechee Culture
When West African people were enslaved and brought to America, a rich heritage of language, music, stories and traditions came with them. For generations, people known as Gullah-Geechee have kept the culture alive, weaving threads into Georgia’s history since before it became a state. This week we’re hearing how some descendants are passing along the Gullah heritage to the next generation.
