NPF African American Experience Fund Preserved Gullah and Geechee Culture

African American Experience Fund at NPF helped establish the Gullah/Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor from Florida to North Carolina

The African American Experience Fund, a program of the National Park Foundation, helped establish the Gullah/Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor in the coastal southeast.

Designated by Congress in 2006, the Gullah/Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor extends from Wilmington, North Carolina in the north to Jacksonville, Florida in the south. It is home to one of America's most unique cultures, a tradition first shaped by captive Africans brought to the southern United States from West Africa and continued in later generations by their descendents.
