Keeping Gullah/Geechee Fresh

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. ๐Ÿ˜ #weoutchea gullahteacha.com ๐Ÿ“š๐ŸŽ

From North Chuck to Nassau, We Literally Outchea

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

Believe In Yourself

“Sometimes, it takes dogged self-belief, beyond proof that they can see, to show them who you areโ€ฆ remember, gems that shine in the light are formed in the dark.” -Sunn m’Cheaux ๐Ÿ–ค #weoutchea #gullah #geechee #affirmations gullahteacha.com

Harvard Gullah Teacha Invited to Lecture at University of the Bahamas #weoutchea

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! #weoutcheaโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š gullahteacha.com
