Queen’s Chronicle: Welcomin’ Home de Gullah/Geechee Famlee ta Barbados wid de Drums and Dance
Never once in South Carolina’s educational institutions were we told of the revolutionary spirits of the island of Barbados. We were never told of the uprising of 1675. Knowing this now makes me wonder if our family members rose up to fight for us that were taken from the island and placed on the Sea Islands and forced to build Charlestown which is now “Charleston, SC” where our ancestors blood, sweat, and tears flows beneath the cobblestones, asphalt, and concrete. I wondered what type of mindset would have been instilled in our family throughout the African Diaspora and the Gullah/Geechee Diaspora if we had known that there was no sweetness that they had found amidst all the sugar cane.
