The original African-Americans

Nothing irks me more than to hear 1619 used as the beginning point for African-Americans in the United States.   That leaves out the Gullah peoples of the Low Country who date back to at least 1527 in South Carolina.

Gullah/Geechee Nation International Music & Movement Festival™ 2008 is Saturday and Sunday at the Charleston Maritime Center at 10 Wharfside Drive from Noon to 7 pm each day.   You can call 843-838-1171 or 843-572-6788 for more details.
