“We have to embrace that it’s sacred..”
Video from The Gullah Project:
Travel to St. Helena Island home to the Gullah / Geechee culture. Taking much of their culture from their West African ancestors, St. Helena is one of the last Gullah farming and fishing communities left in America. Residents are now wrestling with gentrification, land preservation, and conservation issues.
