A cultural historian with expertise in folk traditions of her native South Carolina Lowcountry, Vennie Deas Moore will explore the many-faceted histories of Sandy Island, the largest undeveloped freshwater island on the eastern coast. Many of the small Island community descended from enslaved Africans and strive to sustain traditional Gullah culture against the rush of modernity.
