Going from one Georgia to the other Georgia

This being my blog and all, I am expanding the scope yet again. I’m not going to keep doing that every other week, but I will whenever I feel like it. How about that for boundaries? Anyway. I’m starting a new sub-category called “Nations within Nations”. There are lots of people in this world that have more in-depth stories of where and how they live, and it’s imperative to honor that.

So, on to the next few weeks. I wanted to wind down the year with something a little closer to home and I was presented with the perfect chance, with Georgia on my mind. I took a deep dive into the country, so now it’s time to turn to the state of the same name…

I’m going to focus on the Gullah / Geechee nation, and the influence they’ve had on the Lowcountry of the American South, and the rest of the U.S, even if most Americans might not know it. I’m fortunate to have had a small , very distant introduction to the power of this culture, having grown up in Savannah, and I’m genuinely excited to learn more.
