Celebrating Barbados & De Gullah/Geechee Nation

Many 2020 celebrations were disrupted due to the coronavirus pandemic. Amongst these were numerous return home to Africa celebrations and the 350th of Charleston, SC. These were scheduled to overlap with the 300th celebration in Barbados and the 20th Anniversary of the Gullah/Geechee Nation.
