So… if a #Gullah/#Geechee person called your cooking “fresh,” that may or may not have been a compliment, depending on how/if you seasoned the food. 😁 #weoutchea gullahteacha.com 📚🍎
As a #Gullah/#Geechee kid living down a sandy road in a secluded Lowcountry (SC) familial village, I never knew why outsiders often asked me “Which [Caribbean] island are you from?” Usally they thought I was Bahamian. I discovered why through my studies of our peoples, but being here in Nassau it sounds like I’m back in North Charleston. Man… we outchea, literally! #weoutchea #diaspora gullahteacha.com
“Sometimes, it takes dogged self-belief, beyond proof that they can see, to show them who you are… remember, gems that shine in the light are formed in the dark.” -Sunn m’Cheaux 🖤 #weoutchea #gullah #geechee #affirmations gullahteacha.com
I ❤ #Gullah #Geechee salutations! There are countless ways we greet each other which depend on many variables. I grew up fascinated by Daddy’s “Wah yuh seh deh, boba!” @ his work buddies switch to “Pres de Laad” @ church sis & bros. Always made me smile. Still does.🌞 #weoutchea gullahteacha.com 📚🍎
Remember a few weeks ago I told y’all I had some exciting news for you but couldn’t share it at the time? Well, it’s time… BIM! I’m profoundly honored to be invited by University of The Bahamas to be their 14th Annual Anatol Rodgers Memorial Lecturer & visiting scholar. If you’re unfamiliar with Anatol Rodgers, she was an academic trailblazer in the Bahamas whose memorial lecturers include such esteemed speakers as the renowned poet, playwright, professor, & social activist Sonia Sanchez. For me to be in their company for such a respected university & highly regarded figure is truly humbling. Moreover, the direct kinship between Gullah and Bahamian people makes this even more special to me than what I can adequately express. I can’t wait to share my stay there with y’all, daily. Meanwhile, #Gullah #Geechee people, stand up! #weoutchea❤️💛💚 gullahteacha.com
Even on a rainy, windy day, having beautiful bright red, gold, & green foliage cascading & decorating every step I take on campus looks/feels like blessings literally a’fall pan mi life… sen’n demya ❤💛💚 vibe fi unu. Selah. #weoutchea #gullah #geechee gullahteacha.com
It’s a wonderful, validating sense of achievement to be peppered with questions relevant to my lesson of the day by energetic, inspired 7th-graders in my @harvard #ProjectTeach #Gullah class. Even after we ran out of time, their questions kept coming… *beaming* 🌞 #weoutchea #geechee #teach #language @harvardlocal | gullahteacha.com 📚🍎
