About the event

Gullah Language Summer Series with Dr. Jessica Berry

Dr. Jessica Berry knows firsthand the challenges that Gullah Geechee communities face in the classroom. Berry, raised in Huger, South Carolina, struggled as a child with the language in classroom settings and has since then tied much of her work as a speech language pathologist to dismantling negative connotations about the Gullah Geechee language, culture and community. This four session virtual summer series will provide an in-depth exploration of the origins, modernizations, and implications of Gullah language!

Session 2: July 14 This session will explore components of past language studies that remain in modern Gullah Language.
