Shadows of the Gullah Geechee

When: Sun., Aug. 20, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. 2017

Pete Marovich’s photo series Shadows of the Gullah Geechee comes to McLeod plantation this Sunday. The photos raise awareness of issues facing modern Gullah Geechee people by capturing everyday moments of work, play, and worship. “Pete’s photos frame subjects, in this case Gullah Geechee people, within the context of their 21st century lives,” says Sean Halifax, cultural history interpretation coordinator for CCPRC. “It is a far cry from how Gullah Geechee people are often presented in the media and to tourists, just as basket makers and storytellers. Some are, and their work and artistry is astounding. But there is so much more.” The exhibit is part of an ongoing series at McLeod Plantation focused on art inspired by the lives of former slaves.
