If the ancestral lineages are established and verified then I support the move for the Gullah Geechee citizenship to be adopted

I believe that if all traces and links show and prove that this community has ancestoral links to Sierra Leone, the least we as a ppl can do is not only recognise this fact, but also acknowledge it and award them their right to citizenship as a small token of reconciling and atoning for whatever went wrong back then.

I believe the Gullah Geechee should have citizenship in Sierra and Leone - they will be an asset to that country.

I am Gullah Geechee and a Pan-Afrikanist. If we are to be the mighty people that God intended us to be we must reclaim I citizenship as Afrikans on the Continent of Afrika. We did not give up our Citizenry when we were stripped from our lands during the enslavement period. The only way to be whole is to be citizens in the new world while also maintaining our citizenship in our mother nations. Very much how European Jews maintain western citizenship while simultaneously being citizens in Israel.
