Gullah/Geechee commission to meet Nov. 19

The Gullah/Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission will hold its quarterly meeting at 9 a.m. Nov. 19 in Brunswick, Ga., to decide how the corridor should operate during the next 10 years.

The meeting, open to the public, will be at the Ritz Theatre, 1530 Newcastle St.

The commission's selection will be based on public comments received about three alternatives announced in September: no action; public education about Gullah/Geechee people and culture; or helping the Gullah/Geechee sustain their culture.

The preferred alternative could be one of those three, a combination of ideas from more than one or a new alternative, said Michael Allen, community partnership specialist with the National Parks Service.
