Bus Adventures

The Gullah Geechee Heritage Corridor

I just read the plan for the Gullah Geechee Heritage Corridor prepared by the Commission for The Department of the Interior and it is amazing! If you are a Gullah descendant, I cannot stress enough...just how monumental this four-state 8.2 acre preservation project is...if i am to believe what i read we can look forward to a future where not only the folkways attributed to sea island gullah life are preserved but where the very people preserving them are rightly recognized and no longer lost like GHOSTS...Finally, Finally...if i get my way, we will finally know "Doll" as a person and not as "..a negro girl with child."...Finally, we will have OURSELVES, we will own our own identities...because we refused to give up...we flooded libraries and museums...taking each piece of our identity by one. And just like during Reconstruction...we will run...we will run at a frantic pace to eachother...ALL-THE-WAY-HOME...

Romney plans to give DRILLING power to the STATES?

What? Yes, let's give prison inmates guns so that they can keep themselves safe...This would actually be funny, if i didnt think that he was serious...Does he even know how terrible some states do in education...? Was he even there when BP had that oil spill?

We've Moved!

Due to the growth of my overwhelmingly large amount of content on my facebook page and my growing need to have easier ways to publish, I’ve decided to move my page to Posterous.

Basically Posterous is...Luxury Living for Bloggers!

So, if you wanna continue chatting with me and still despite everything still think I'm worth having as a friend you can check me out and read my posts regularly at

Feel free to update your RSS feeds to if you follow me regularly or even not at all.

Just do it! 

In the meantime, my facebook space will simply be used to make the transfer to Posterous move a little more smoothly. 

I'm telling you people, if you aren't on Posterous, then you haven't lived!

See you at the new site!

Note:  I will be moving all of my photos, videos and contacts to Posterous and will only be Autoposting to my Facebook account only!

My photos will be available via my Flickr Account: African American Genealogy with Fallon Green and give me at least a week to get all my emails in sync and transferred. 

If you need to see any past videos or posts they will still be available on Facebook, but no NEW posts will be made through Facebook directly.

Please update our new information in your contacts.
