Summary 75% of all enslaved Africans coming to America came in through the ports of Charleston, Beaufort and Georgetown, South Carolina. The result of this mingling of enslaved Africans from West Africa with the plantation culture awaiting them in America became Gullah; the genesis and taproot of African American culture. Most popularly portrayed through music, language, food, art, religion and storytelling. Gullah is a part of American history they didn't teach you in school! This film is a dazzling and moving visual celebration of Gullah people in words and music, by one of America's preeminent cultural ambassadors: Anita Singleton-Prather and the Gullah kinfolk.
