The Sea Islands off the coast of South Carolina are home to a once vibrant and isolated low country culture with roots in West Africa. West African slaves who arrived through the trade ports of Charleston forged a distinctive Gullah culture and language during their first generation in Colonial America. Inspired by the research of Kenyon professors Peter Rutkoff (American Studies) and Will Scott (Emeritus History), these three exhibitions focus on the visual history and art of Gullah culture.
