Summary
On Sapelo Island, a tiny community is struggling to preserve its Geechee culture -- a rich combination of West African and African-American traditions found in the coastal regions of Georgia and South Carolina. Once widely populated by descendants of slaves and freedmen, Sapelo, an island still accessible only by boat, is now home to just seventy African Americans who are in jeopardy of losing the land on which their forebears have lived since the eighteenth century
