15 Aug “Unmasking My Gullah Heritage: A Sense of Self and Place” A presentation by Emory Campbell
Savannah, GA (August 15, 2010) — Emory Campbell, chairman of the Gullah Geechee Corridor Commission and a board member of the Ossabaw Island Foundation, will present “Unmasking My Gullah Heritage: A Sense of Self and Place” at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 4 at the Decatur City Hall, as part of the Decatur Book Festival in Decatur, Georgia.
Billed as the largest independent book festival in the U.S., the Decatur Book Festival features more than 300 authors and draws an estimated 80,000 people to free lectures and book events at venues throughout downtown Decatur each Labor Day weekend.
Campbell is one of eleven contributors to the UGA Press book African American Life in the Georgia Lowcountry: The Atlantic World and the Gullah Geechee, published in early 2010 and produced with the support of The Ossabaw Island Education Alliance. He is also the author of Gullah Cultural Legacies. His Decatur Book Festival comments will draw on his essay in the UGA Press book. Both books will be available for purchase, and Campbell will sign books after his lecture.
