Over the past twenty years, the Gullah/Geechee Sea Island Coalition ( www.gullahgeechee.net has led the effort to keep Gullah/Geechee land ownership going and to protect the human rights of Gullah/Geechees worldwide.Unfortunately, the Gullah/Geechee have continued to suffer land loss and also the loss of numerous lives in the Gullah/Geechee Nation with the drowning of a Gullah/Geechee family from Sandy Island and the murders of Walter Scott in North Charleston, and Cynthia Hurd, Suzy Jackson, Ethel Lance, Rev. Depayne Middleton-Doctor, Rev. Clementa Pinckney, Tywanza Sanders, Rev. Daniel Simmons Sr., Rev. Sharonda Singleton, and Myra Thompson at Emanuel AME in Charleston, SC in 2015.
