The Gullah-Geechee Heritage Commission scheduled a public forum Thursday evening to discuss the preservation of our area’s Gullah-Geechee culture.

The culture originated from slaves who were brought to our coast from West Africa.

“There are probably pockets of preservation that various different groups are individuals may be preserving as part of their daily lives and that’s what they are trying to discover with this meeting tonight,” said Cape Fear Museum Director Ruth Hass.
