The Lowcountry Gullah Foundations announces its Annual Fundraiser on Friday, May 12th at the USCB Hilton Head Campus. Join the Foundation for an intimate evening of Gullah culture and grace through storytelling, dinner, and a silent auction. Nationally known Master Gullah Storyteller, Sista Patt will speak and share incredible stories about the culture, its foodways and music.
“We are very excited about sharing the richness of Gullah culture with the community in such a unique way,” says Founder, Luana Graves Sellars. “By learning about the culture and its significance to American society, people will also appreciate the concerns that Gullah families are facing with historic land loss.”
Sankofa Nights is a fundraiser for the Lowcountry Gullah Foundation whose mission is to preserve and protect historic Gullah Land. The Foundation raises funds to assist Gullah Geechee families who are trying to untangle issues with heirs’ property and or struggling to pay their delinquent County taxes. In addition to financial assistance, the Foundation provides necessary solutions to prevent yearly returns to the tax list and resolve heirs’ property for good.
Your support helps us to continue offering information, resources and support to families so that they can establish a solid knowledge and financial base from a series of targeted programs. The programming includes workshops with general and individualized guidance on economic land opportunities, as well as understanding and untangling title and heirs property issues.
