The Gullah Society presents Egungun Tungi: Ancestors Rise Again

February 27 @ 6:30 pm

Join us for ‘Egungun Tunji: Ancestors Rise Again!’ on February 27th, at 6.30pm at the Cannon Street Arts Center.

Community Conversations continue to be held at various community venues in and around Charleston, these are free and open to all.  We want to hear what you think are appropriate ways to remember and honor our ancestors buried near Anson Street. Through the community engagement, school and art programs we hope to explore what you would like to see for the memorial.  How does our understanding of the identity of the people buried at this site and those of African descent living in Charleston today affect the reinterment ceremony and the design of a memorial for the reburial site?
