A Screening + Discussion of Julie Dash’s Film: DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST (5-7pm)

Set in 1902, Daughters Of The Dust tells the story of three generations of Gullah (also known as Geechee) women on St. Helena Island as they prepare to migrate to the North. 

The Gullah culture and language have endured in areas of the Low Country. This film shares their story, bringing our attention to the ancestral roots and cultural upheaval. 

 


AND Dance for Geechee people and the Gullah Culture** (10pm-2am)
With Alex + Jazsalyn

Help us resist the oppression of the Gullah Geechee Corridor, America's final African tribe of slave descendants. 

The Gullah Geechee tribe is in a state of crisis, as they fight against corporate efforts to confiscate ancestral land. 
Together we can protect the Gullah Geechee tribe and preserve Black America's last connection to African origins. 

This is the Slave descendants' #NODAPL and we will not go silently into the goodnight.
