This is a historic work that details interdisciplinary research within the Gullah/Geechee Nation. Ethnography, anthropology, science, history, and literary reflections and analysis all come to life from these pages as they not only provide the history of the formation of Gullah/Geechee culture, but focus on the issues of leveraging cultural capital in the current human rights movement of the Gullah/Geechee Nation. This anthology tells the living story of the Gullah/Geechee. Disya da who WEBE!

She is a computer scientist, mathematician, environmentalist, preservationist, historian, and author that has been nationally honored as a living legend. This is the second anthology that she has compiled on the history and cultural heritage of the Gullah/Geechee Nation.
