“Mo Fa We Fa Nyam: How Lowcountry Rice Landscapes & Culture Present an Afrofuturist Blueprint for Transformational World-Building”

Sara Makeba Daise, Public Historian from Atlanta, Georgia

Daise will explore how enslaved West African and Gullah Geechee engineers, agriculturists, and culture bearers who transformed the Lowcountry cypress swamps into endless fields of Carolina Gold can be viewed as possibility-models for those seeking to positively alter the global landscape in what seems like pale and hopeless times. 

Programs are at 1:00 p.m. in the Wall Lowcountry Center Auditorium and are free with Garden admission. To reserve seating, call 843-235-6049
