The Gullah are African Americans who live in the Low Country region of South Carolina and Georgia. The Gullah language is related to Jamaican Creole and the Bahamian and West African dialects.
Here the speech of the Gullah has been preserved in “Dusky Land – Gullah Poems and Sketches of Coastal Carolina”.
Written by brother and sister team Ernest hay Colcock and Patti Lee Hay Colcock, and illustrated with delicate silhouettes by Carew Rice. They are primarily images of cotton picking, the outdoors and agricultural activities.
