The Gathering at Geechee Kunda
Placeholder Image
One of Liberty County’s tourism treasures, Geechee Kunda, will host its major annual event, the Gathering, Saturday at the museum in Riceboro from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
The African-American heritage center is drawing increasing attention as the most accessible site now portraying the Geechee Gullah culture which came over from Africa with slaves imported to work on coastal plantations.
Geechee Kunda is on Way’s Temple Road near Highway 17 in Riceboro, part of the former Retreat Plantation. It is easily accessible from I-95, in contrast to other remaining Geechee Gullah outposts, many of which are on islands, some reachable only by boat.
Saturday’s festivities will include historians, conjurors, artists, singers, musicians, dancers and other attractions.
