The Authentic Gullah-Geechee Festival is a themed event which is a collaboration between Unity in the Community, INC and some dedicated people of the Gullah-Geechee community. With the vision of Unity in the Community, INC, which is to celebrate cultural diversity, some in the Gullah-Geechee community were inspired to work with them to create this festival.
