The Gullah/Geechee Flag represents those sons and daughters of Africa who were forced to come to America in ships of pain, for a life of servitude and death.
For more than three hundred years the Anointed People of the African Sun were auction off to the highest bidder torn away from tribal and family ties, systematically deprived of ancient African names, physically and mentally brutalized in both body and soul.
Forced to renounce traditional religions and beliefs, stripped of self-respect, dehumanized, tortured without mercy or moral concern, lynched, raped, denied political access, methodically conditioned to engage in self hate and denied any hope of freedom.
And after the genocide, cheated out of the promised 40 acres and a mule.
Yet, the Gullah/Geechee Anointed People survived like a bright shining star above adversity to finally be free again.
