Gullah Geechee Commission meeting

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- The commission working to preserve the culture of sea island slave descendants in four southeastern states is scheduled to meet in Florida.

The Charleston-based Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission is slated to meet in Fernandina Beach on Friday.

Commission members will be updated on a search for its first executive director. The commission last year announced it is seeking an executive director to help oversee the work of the agency.

The panel developed a management plan that was more than a dozen years in the making. It received final approval from the U.S. Department of the Interior last year.

The culture is known as Gullah in the Carolinas and Geechee in Georgia and Florida. The corridor reaches from near Jacksonville, N.C., to just south of Jacksonville, Fla.
