A Culture on the Brink 

Sapelo Island resident and historian Cornelia Walker Bailey and her grandson Jamarcus Wilson drive into Hog Hammock, home to a Gullah/Geechee community that has been on the island for generations. Bailey and her family, like many of Sapelo’s natives, are direct descendants of enslaved Africans.
