CONWAY — The four-state Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission will hold its quarterly meeting May 17 at Cherry Hill Missionary Baptist Church in Conway.
The Commission is a federally-created entity responsible for overseeing efforts to recognize contributions by the Gullah Geechee who settled in an area extending from Jacksonville, Fla., to north of Wilmington, N.C. The Commission is also to seek opportunities to preserve land within the corridor.
Three million of the eight million acres in the corridor are in South Carolina, the most of any of the states.
Veronica Gerald of Conway is an alternate member of the Commission.
The meeting begins at 9 a.m. and is open to the public.
