Spreading Gullah

As part of my focused writing on the Gullah and efforts to educate and share the rich contributions of the culture, I also do interviews, speaking engagements and teach classes. For years, I have taught Osha Life Long Learning Institute (OLLI) classes on The Stories of the Hilton Head Gullah to hundreds of people who are interested in increasing their knowledge about the culture through stories from my First Families of Hilton Head series of articles. The newest class, From Slavery to Lowcountry Gullah spans from the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade through the Civil War, Reconstruction, and lifestyles of the Gullah.

Here’s what students who took From Slavery to the Lowcountry Gullah said about the class.

I recently took your class “From Slavery to the Lowcountry Gullah” in the OLLI On Demand library.  Since I did not have the opportunity to give feedback, I wanted to let you know how interesting and informative I found your presentation.  
What a wealth of wonderful cultural information!  Most of us lack insight into the origins and the horrors of slavery.

Although I know it could only scratch the surface, your class helped broaden my understanding of the heritage and culture of our Lowcountry neighbors.  Thank you for a fascinating presentation.  Bravo!
