Did you know Gullah Geechee is more than a language or dialect it is a culture? Thousands of enslaved Africans survived the middle passage to reach the sea island shores. The majority of the slaves, 40,000 came from a section of Africa known as Angola. With the people- Mende, Kisi, Malinke, and Bantu - came the soul of Africa. Their ancestral traditions survived as well. The words "Gullah" and "Geechee" have come to describe that legacy.
