Herb Frazier comments on Family Across the Sea and The Language You Cry In
Presented in conjunction with Grass Roots: African Origins of an American Art
The Language You Cry Intells an amazing scholarly detective story that searches
for -and finds- meaningful links between African Americans and their ancestral
past. It bridges hundreds of years and thousands of miles from the Gullah people
of present-day Georgia back to 18th century Sierra Leone.
Family Across the Seais Roots - retold as an historical and linguistic detective
story. It traces how scholars have uncovered the connection between the Gullah
people of South Carolina's Sea Islands and the people of Sierra Leone.
