Gullah Spirit Launch Party with Jonathan Green

Meet artist Jonathan Green, get a signed copy of his new book, Gullah Spirit, and enjoy a live choral performance inspired by his art. Jonathan Green is best known for his vibrant depictions of the Gullah life and culture established by descendants of enslaved Africans who settled between northern Florida and North Carolina during the nineteenth century. For decades, Green’s vividly colored paintings and prints have captured and preserved the daily rituals and Gullah traditions of his childhood in the Lowcountry marshes of South Carolina. The 179 new paintings featured in Gullah Spirit beckon the world to not only see this vanishing culture but also to embrace its truth and enduring spirit.
