Arrival in Marrakesh, Morocco was truly a long journey. Given that I flew on multiple flights and had a six hour layover in the Netherlands, the effects on my body made me appreciate all the more what my ancestors had been through on their journey by sea going in the opposite direction. Just reflecting on this took me right back to the place and space of giving thanks for the blessing of being able to go to the Motherland to represent the Gullah/Geechee Nation especially for such a historic event.
Dorchester County is celebrating first in 2015! They hold the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest sweet tea for the first time and they have now proclaimed their first “Gullah/Geechee Nation Appreciation Week!”
