Explore Gullah Geechee Culture With The Human Library Series

Participate in the Human Library, a new series intended to combat intolerance by creating a safe space for interested members of the community to engage in open, honest and respectful dialogue with individuals who have been exposed to prejudice or stigma.

The fourth series session features Reverend DeMett E. Jenkins, Director of Education and Engagement for Faith-Based Communities at the International African-American Museum. Jenkins will discuss her experiences growing up with Gullah parents, and the stories she shares will feature home remedies, family support and gatherings, spirituality, food, and traditions passed down for generations. This program is co-sponsored by the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission. The Corridor is a federal National Heritage Area established by the U.S. Congress to recognize the unique culture and historic contributions of the Gullah Geechee people. This event is free and open to the public. No registration is required.
