Africans who live on the Gullah or Geechie Islands are being forcibly removed from their homes by crooked colonial politicians and parasitic capitalists in favor of hotels resorts and golf courses.
These Africans––known as Geechie people by many––are the descendants of Africans from West and Central Africa who were enslaved and forced to work on the rice and indigo plantations on the islands off the coast of South Carolina, Georgia and northeast Florida during slavery.
Their isolated location on these islands have sheltered them from much of the outside colonial influences. This allowed them to preserve much of our African culture through language, food, music and spirituality.
