THE SPIRIT OF WEST AFRICA IN THE GULLAH ISLANDS & MORE TOUR!
Educate yourself about US history that you never learned in textbooks or at grade school during this 5-day Memorial Day Holiday. Situated in the heart of historic Beaufort, SC, our lessons begin with our stay at the Beaufort Inn....where "history is made." Attend the Gullah Festival and learn more about the beauty and mystery of the "disappearing" Gullah culture, a compelling mix of West African legacy and the American experience. Visit St. Helena Island, site of one of the country's first schools for freed slaves and one of the most significant African American historical and cultural institutions as well as the Oyo-Tunji village, designed to follow ancient Yoruba (Nigeria) tradition.
