Kids and their parents can learn about a unique African culture that once stretched along the United States’ eastern seaboard when they visit the Children’s Museum starting Saturday, Sept. 25.
“Gullah is a West African culture that survived the hardships of slavery and remained almost unscathed since the 1600s,” according to a press release from the museum.
Organizers say the exhibit, called “Tales from the Land of Gullah,” turns back the clock to the 1940’s when the Gullah culture had little contact with the outside world.
“In today's society, values and traditions are assimilating into one as advances in technology bring the world together,” the museum said. “This exhibit aims to preserve and provide cultural understanding of Gullah traditions, as well as develop an appreciation for one's own culture and background.”
The exhibit runs from Sept. 25 until Jan. 2.
