Summary:
An exhibition documenting the historical journey made by people from Africa to the Americas, along with their language and music. In the 1930s, Lorenzo Dow Turner discovered that the Gullah people of Georgia and South Carolina retained parts of the culture and language of their West African enslaved ancestors. Turner's research produced a living treasury of previously unknown traditions, songs, and folkways that also uncovered and illuminated the connections with West African and Afro-Brazilian communities.
These records document the reseach, execution, and promotion of the exhibition and symposium associated with the exhibit. Materials include research files, catalogues, family and visitor guides, symposium programs, posters and docent materials.
