    "We Be Gullah/Geechee Anointed" - Four-Part Documentary Series Proposal Outline

    "We Be Gullah/Geechee Anointed" sets out to debunk the belief and challenge the false narrative that the descendants of West Africans formerly enslaved in the US are merely the descendants of slaves in America as well as in (West) Africa; while outlining and documenting their rich and untold history, unlike the misinformation that has been regurgitated without question that their history only began with enslavement.

    The series will educate while entertaining ("edutain") the public about the Gullah/Geechee culture, its language, traditions, food ways and over looked (excluded) history from a Gullah/Geechee perspective, versus what others (Europeans, European-Americans) have attempted to do in telling their version of this remarkable history; which has often times been inaccurate and racially biased.

    A few of those to be interviewed would include:
    1) Elder Carlie Towne, Minister of Information for the Gullah/Geechee Nation. Elder Carlie Towne was at the forefront of having Queen Quet elected, selected and enstooled;
    2) Queen Quet, Chieftess of the Gullah/Geechee Nation. Queen Quet is the first official spokesperson for the Gullah/Geechee people. She was also one of the first Gullah/Geechee people to speak before the United Nations about the Gullah/Geechee culture, its uniqueness and many challenges the people face;
    3) John Middleton III, whose great-grandmother - Louise "Titty" Wright - along with forty plus other Africans pooled their monies together and purchased the plantation where they and their ancestors had been enslaved, founding "Freedmans Village", where they were successful as well as prosperous.

    The four-part series (one hour per segment) would consist of interviews with Gullah/Geechee experts on the subjects of:
    1) Their language;
    2) Traditional ways that Gullah/Geechees have maintained/held onto versus African-Americans who are more assimilated; the challenges they face and how they continue to fight these adversities.
    3) Their food ways and recipes; then finally
    4) Their West African history, which began with the Ghana Empire (300 - 1235); the Hausa Empire (500-1808); the Yoruba Empire (800-1835); the Mali/Mandingo Empire (500-1700); the Songhai Empire (1300-1464); the Benin Empire (1440-1897). These peoples consisting of: Ashanti, Bossa, Fulani, Gidzi, Gola, Igbo, Kissi, Kru, Mende, Melienke, Pela, Vai, as well as others.
