From 40% to 75% of the West Africans brought to America during the slave trade entered the country through ports in the Lowcountry; the home of Gullah. This means that half or more of today’s African Americans can trace their roots in America to the Gullah people.
Although February is national “Black History Month“, we have reasons to appreciate black heritage in America every day of the year. Black men and women have made significant contributions that benefit all of mankind and this is a way to share these achievements.
The story of the Gullah journey from Africa to America is now available on DVD. This is a moving visual celebration of the people in words and music, by one of America’s preeminent cultural storytellers; Anita Singleton-Prather, “the First Lady of Gullah™ and The Gullah Kinfolk.
This is the story that affects all Americans, it is the untold narrative of black history in the United States.
