CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) – Nestled along the southeast is a strand of sea islands.

Today, descendants of once enslaved Africans are working hard to hold on to a precious culture and language that has slowly given way to development and transformation.

Akua Page and Chris Cato, co-founders of the Geechee Experience, joined us in-studio to tell us all about their empowering organization.
