We will wrap up the month raising funds for the new interpretive kiosk for Fort Fremont on historic St. Helena Island, SC. This is one of the many forts along the Gullah/Geechee Nation‘s coast that was built by our ancestors. To insure that this part of ourstory will have an opportunity to be made available to all that come to visit this historic site, we are encouraging everyone to come out to the Celadon Club on Lady’s Island, SC in the Gullah/Geechee Nation on Friday, September 30th between 6:00 and 8:30 pm for “Down Caribbean Way” featuring DJ Kwame Sha of All Mobile Productionswho will spin for this Caribbean night of fun and fundraising!
