Help Save the @GullahGeechee Communities of Phillips and 7 Mile

Once again, the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition is partnering with the South Carolina Coastal Conservation League and also with Charleston Moves to protect the Gullah/Geechees of Mt. Pleasant, SC. Unfortunately, the roadway plans depicted in the documentary are now slated to take place. If they are to go forward, Highway 41 would run straight through Phillips and there wouldn’t be any sound barriers to stop the further disruption of the quality of life for the native Gullah/Geechees on family compounds in Phillips and Seven Mile.

The others will have to figure out where they will live since they will be displaced.

Gullah/Geechee: Heirs to Heirlooms

Many Gullah/Geechee heirs lost the value of their inheritance and their heirlooms over the generations because they truly were unaware of the value that lies therein.  They didn’t realize that land was not a burden because you had to pay taxes for it.  It is actually one of the greatest assets that one can possess.  An asset greater than that our ancestors had even during their enslavement on these lands that are now the Gullah/Geechee Nation is vision.
