no, i didn't know that. i was in south carolina some years ago and met a small gullah community.

they were nice and cordial but don't fully accept other black people not of their gullah people.

we all had a nice time. they are a very cultural and proud people.

Clarence Thomas is also a Gullah. He's not exactly someone I'd claim though if I were them.

Gullah speech is very interesting, and very African.

I met a Gullah man once, but the mainstream AA with him had to translate between us, as I could not understand him.

Fascinating culture and I have also read that their food is incredibly good.
