In partnership with First Baptist Church of James Island, Sunn m’Cheaux, Christal Heyward and Dr. Jessica Berry. Awakening of the Ancestors Through Music will offer the public an experience that is as melodic as it is revelatory. Embark on a journey that uses the intersections of Lowcountry spirituals to explore Gullah Geechee culture. The event provides opportunities for learning: from witnessing the Lowcountry’s rich ancestral music heritage—its styles, meaning, language and purpose—to directly engaging in dialogue and community throughout the entire program.
