FOOD FOR THOUGHT LUNCHEON LECTURE (IN PERSON)

The Gullah people descend from enslaved Africans and live in the coastal areas of the Southeastern United States, and their influence on Charleston’s culture – from cuisine to the arts to historic traditions – is indelible. When freedom came to the enslaved people who toiled on rice plantations in lower Berkeley County, SC, many remained to farm the land and raise their families in settlements near the plantation gates. Charleston-based writer Herb Frazier, author of Behind God’s Back: Gullah Memories of Cainhoy, Wando, Huger, Daniel Island, St. Thomas Island, South Carolina, will share accounts of the experiences of Gullah people who struggled after Emancipation, through the Depression and into the middle of the twentieth century to maintain their African-based lifestyles in rural communities near Charleston.

A book signing will follow the lecture.
