Gullah heritage panel opposes finishing 526
Tuesday, October 4, 2011
The commission working to protect the culture of slave descendants on South Carolina’s sea islands opposes completing Interstate 526.
The federal Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission released a letter Monday it sent last month to Charleston County Council. In the letter, commission chairman Emory Campbell said completing the interstate through Charleston’s western suburbs would devastate an already threatened Gullah-Geechee culture.
