Travelin Round De' Bend

In the spring of 2018, the Upperman Center took eight students on an alternative spring break trip that they will never forget. UNCW students toured the Gullah-Geechee corridor, visiting musuems, restaurants and waterways in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Students went on three guided tours in Charleston, St. Helena Island and Hilton Head, SC, learning about praise houses, gentrification, rice plantations and the West African connections of Gullah people

The trip was a part of larger offerings from Upperman to highlight the contributions of the Gullah Geechee coast through a cohesive programming slate under the banner, "A People By The Sea." The five day trip invited students to learn about the complexities of language, slavery, land and traditional gullah cuisine.
