Summary:
Connecting the Worlds of the African Diaspora: The Living Legacy of Lorenzo Dow Turner was a symposium held at the Anacostia Community Museum November 12-13, 2010. The keynote speaker was Emory Shaw Campbell, and other participants included Alcione M. Amos, Herb Frazier, Thomas B. Klein, Livio Sansone, and Kevin A. Yalvington. The symposium was held in association with the Word, Shout, Song exhibition, which documented the historical journey made by people from Africa, their language, and their music, to the Americas. Through words, music, and story, Lorenzo Dow Turner discovered in the 1930s that the Gullah people of Georgia and South Carolina still possessed parts of the culture and language of their enslaved ancestors, which had long been believed lost. The exhibit was on view at the Anacostia Community Museum from August 9, 2010 to July 24, 2011, during which time the Lorenzo Dow Turner Symposium was held at the museum. This collection contains video and audio recordings documenting the exhibit-related symposium.
