How the Gullah Retain their Roots: A Virtual Lecture by Ada McKenzie Thomas, Ph.D.

February 21 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- Free

How have the Gullah/Geechee, a population of African Americans in South Carolina and Georgia, held tight to their African cultural roots beyond other African Americans in the US? This distinction results from the preservation of the folklore and oral traditions by the Gullah. Through an examination of music and selected texts, participants will discuss their impression of “Gullah” and “Geechee” and the folklore, values, and ideals associated with them. Moreover, the challenges and rewards of preserving traditional cultures, in general, will be explored. Virtual lecture by Ada McKenzie Thomas, Ph.D.
