As you well know by now, February is Black History Month.
Consider honoring the history of the Gullah people by listening to local attorney Scott Graber's preview and introduction to Black Yeomanry: Life on St. Helena Island by Thomas Jackson Woofter via the CityTrex podcast page . He reviewed the book as part of the 2011 Books-Sandwiched-In series. Scroll down to the bottom to find the his podcast.
Similar books that are about Gullah life in the Sea Islands that we recommend are:

SC 398 JOH Folk culture on St. Helena Island, South Carolina by Guy B. Johnson. (BDC, HHI)
Just a reminder: The Gullah Celebration  continues on Hilton Head Island. Why not go check out the food, festivities and fun while learning more about Native Islander and Gullah culture?
