About the Event
As we continue the work we began with the Gullah society, we want to sit with community members who have consistently supported us and entrusted us with sharing the lives of the Anson Street Ancestors to ask you to direct our work. At this event, La’Sheia Oubré and Joanna Gilmore host the Community Conversation in person at Cannon Street, while Dr. Raquel Fleskes and Dr. Theodore Schurr will join via Zoom. Raquel and Theodore will be providing an update about the full genomic DNA research and the dental calculus research, which will help us to learn more about the Ancestors’ diet and health. We will also discuss plans for a permanent memorial for the Ancestors. Artwork inspired by the Ancestors and created by children and community members will also be on display.
