Gloria Green to Lead Print and New Media Team

African American Genealogy with Fallon Green is excited to announce that Gloria Green will be managing our New Media office.  The addition comes at a time when African American Genealogy with Fallon Green is expanding into areas beyond its blog.

Prior to joining the team, Gloria Green has worked behind the scenes scheduling and organizing workshops, copy-editing web and print materials while finding and building strategic partnerships with other businesses within the Greater Beaufort area.

With her hiring, we are continuing on the path of growing an african american genealogy brand based in "family values" that honors and celebrates Gullah family heritage and history in the present day.  She brings to our team a passion for early childhood development and education and a commitment to preserving the language, the foodways and the lifestyles of modern-day Gullahs.

Please join us in welcoming Gloria Green to our web and print publishing team.

FREED is coming to this year's GULLAH FESTIVAL!

THE GULLAH FESTIVAL a family oriented, non-profit, non-alcoholic event. The festival began small, and has grown to attract as much as 75,000 people locally, nationally and internationally over the three day period of the festival.  The Gullah Festival continues to receive awards and recognition in the areas of Heritage and Tourism.


FREED is a nationally-recognized Female REENACTMENT group composed entirely of African American women. The troupe dresses in period clothing to portray well known African American women of the Civil War Era. Their mission is to educate the public and to promote the accomplishments of the African American Civil War Soldiers and the women who supported their fight for freedom.  They engage in re-enactments, dramatic readings and various other educational programs in order to share the stories of these distinctive women and men in their lives.  For more information on FREED and the FESTIVAL or to purchase your tickets in advance call 843-525-0628.
