A Culture on the Brink 

Qur’an Green was the only remaining native islander attending the Daufuskie Island Elementary School in 2005. In the 1950s, the Gullah children on the island attended the Mary Fields School during an era of segregation. Today there are only a few Gullah/Geechee living on Daufuskie, which has two resorts and a private residential community.
