Interested members of the community are invited to a safe space to converse with members of the Gullah Geechee community.

This session features Gullah community member Thomalind Martin Polite. Thomalind, a Charleston native, speech therapist and mother of two, will share her journey to discover more about her Gullah and African family roots. Thomalind is a direct descendant of a woman named Priscilla who was brought to South Carolina on a slave ship from Sierra Leone when she was 10 years old. Thomalind created a documentary called “Priscilla’s Legacy,” which will be screened at this event. This program is co-sponsored by the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission.
