This exhibition documents the historical journey made by people from Africa to the Americas\, along with their language and music. In the 1930s\, Lorenzo Dow Turner discovered that the Gullah people of Georgia and South Carolina retained parts of the cult ure and language of their West African enslaved ancestors. Turner’s researc h produced a living treasury of previously unknown traditions\, songs\, and folkways that also uncovered and illuminated the connections with West Afr ican and Afro-Brazilian communities. On view are rare photographs\, recordi ngs\, and artifacts collected by Turner from those Gullah communities in th e United States\, Brazil\, and West Africa.
