The CD’s musical styles include traditional spiritual and also the genres that spirituals birthed:  southern blues, stomp and clap gospel, Gullah Geechee/West African pop, and also a Gullah Geechee/West African/Caribbean blend.  The themes that are highlighted are: African Diaspora; the common cultural connections of food ways, language, rice heritage, crafts, music; the tragedy of enslavement, the importance of family, and the resilience of survival.

This project is funded in part by the South Carolina Arts Commission, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.  I collaborated with Travis Winbush, a musician, producer, and Gullah native of Savannah, GA, and Vernon B. Harris.  Winbush and I previously had collaborated on the recording of “Gullah Geechee Mean a Lot!”, a song that I composed following my election to the chairmanship of the federal Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission in 2012.  It is included on the CD.  During the GGCHCC’s   involvement in the 2013 Presidential Inaugural Parade, the song was broadcast from the float as it passed the Presidential Review Stand.

As a performing artist, author, cultural preservationist, and former Chairman and Founding Commissioner of the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission, I am committed to celebrating and preserving our culture.  Gullah Geechee people, tourists, youths, and adults, I hope, will be pleased.

I am Gullah Geechee.  I am proud!
