It's Toni Carrier, writing to share the exciting news that the Magnolia Plantation Foundation of Charleston, SC has agreed to fund a sister website to Africana Heritage called Lowcountry Africana.
Lowcountry Africana will be entirely dedicated to records that document the family and cultural heritage of African Americans in the historic rice-growing areas of South Carolina, Georgia and extreme northeastern Florida, an area that scholars and preservationists have identified as a distinct culture area, home to the rich Gullah/Geechee culture.
The Lowcountry Africana website will be a treasure trove of primary documents, book excerpts and multimedia that further document and explore the dynamic cultural and family heritage of the Lowcountry Southeast.
Access to the entire content of Lowcountry Africana will always be 100% free. You can learn more about the website features by following the link below:
We are excited and profoundly grateful to the Magnolia Plantation Foundation for their support of this wonderful project.
If you would like to share records for the database, you may send them directly to us at the email address below. We will cherish them, and you, too!
More as news develops!
