Geechee Kunda Cultural Center
Geechee Kunda was founded by Jim and Pat Bacote as a means of contributing to efforts to preserve unmolested elements of African culture that exist in the Gola-Kissi (Geechee Kunda) lands of the Southeastern United States. Geechee Kunda (a Sarakole' word meaning compound) is reflective of the family compounds that exist throughout the Gullah Geechee areas of the Carolinas, Georgia and Northern Florida as well as Africa. It is a living institution dedicated to preserving the culture of a living people. Its museum is filled with African art, textiles, painting, tools, utensils, implements, craftworks and essentials used by Gullah Geechees from the 1700's to the 1900's. In addition to being the home of Jim and Pat Bacote, Geechee Kunda is a multi-purpose facility. The museum houses artifacts from the period of slavery and is used for lectures, workshops, classes, seminars and special events.
