Hunnuh chillun, e da shark week! Look ya! Ain fa hunnuh chillun gwine fa git shark stake. E fa hep we fa mek sho e ain da gwine extinct! Yes, believe it or not, in spite of the fact that native Gullah/Geechees would prefer to bite sharks than to be bitten by sharks, sharks are a threatened species in our waters.
They stood together to once again say, “Don’t drill!”
Oil exploration off our coast will harm seafood, but that’s not all it will kill
The Gullah/Geechee culture is inextricably tied to the sea
Which is why “Don’t Drill” is the mantra in GA, NC, and SC!
