The Gullah Geechee Corridor

Join the Amelia Island Museum of History on their next 3rd on 3rd presentation. 3rd on 3rd are always the third Friday of the month, on 3rd Street (at the museum) and this month the discussion will be about the Gullah Geechee Corridor.

Friday, Feb 21, 2014, at 6:00 PM, they will welcome the the Gullah-Geechee National Heritage Corridor Commission, who will host a presentation on the Gullah Geechee Corridor.

Gullah Geechee people are direct descendants of Africans who were brought to the Americas and enslaved for generations.

The Gullah Geechee Corridor encompasses a cultural and linguistic area along the southeastern coast of the United States from Pender County, North Carolina to St. Johns County, Florida. Gullah culture, with its unique and proud traditions, goes back to the early 1700s, and endures to this day, displayed through cuisine, music and performing arts, language and oral traditions, crafts, and religion and spirituality.

This program is free for members with a suggested donation of $5 for nonmembers. For more information contact Gray at 261-7378 ext 102, or gray@ameliamuseum.org
