Disya who webe

No other organization in the world existed with “Gullah/Geechee” in the name until the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition came into being.  This has become the premiere organization for the continuation of Gullah/Geechee culture and the protection of the rights of Gullah/Geechees.

 

The Sea Islands and the Lowcountry occupying thirty-five miles inland from Jacksonville, North Carolina to Jacksonville, Florida is now the Gullah/Geechee Nation.   Through this region runs the United StatesGullah/Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor that was founded through an act of the United States Congress.   The Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition was the leading organization in the effort to have this national designation done.  The organization continues to work with the citizens of the Gullah/Geechee Nation to insure that their human rights are protected and that the culture continues for the generations to come.
