Gullah Slave History

Gullah Slave Homes - Circle Unbroken PBS


Gullah: noun Gul·lah;

75% of all enslaved Africans coming to America came in through the ports of Charleston, Beaufort and Georgetown, South Carolina. The result of this mingling of enslaved Africans from West Africa with the plantation culture awaiting them in America became Gullah; the genesis and taproot of African American culture.

Most popularly portrayed through music, language, food, art, religion and storytelling. Gullah is a part of American History they didn’t teach you in school!

“Circle Unbroken – A Gullah Journey from Africa to America” portrays the history of these resilient people in music by The Gullah Kinfolk and narrative through the eyes of Anita Singleton-Prather – ‘The First Lady of Gullah™.’

Circle Unbroken – A Gullah Journey from Africa to America is an important, entertaining and educational journey through the roots of our nation’s history. For African Americans in particular, if you have not seen this story and don’t know this history, you are missing a critical piece of your personal identity. UMI has long understood that (our) people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. (Hosea 4:6) finally this knowledge is brought credibly and vibrantly to the screen. A must see!”
