South Carolina Celebrates #GullahGeechee Nation Appreciation Week 2018
The South Carolina coast has been celebrating “Gullah/Geechee Nation Appreciation Week” since it began in the City of Charleston in 2012. As usual, every county that makes up the South Carolina Lowcountry excluding Horry County has participated in proclaiming the celebration.
The celebration was launched in Florida this year for the first time at the Gullah/Geechee Famlee Day at American Beach. It will culminate in Charleston with the Gullah/Geechee Nation International Music & Movement Festival™ once again. This year the celebration is themed “Disya da Gullah/Geechee!”
