1:15pm – 2:45pm

Other
Depot Campus

Come learn with the Center for Learning in Retirement and Robert Stephens, Professor Dept of Music, UConn.

Who are the Gullah? How did their New World community emerge from groups whose African lives were geographically and linguistically different? Ripped from the bosom of their families and brought to the colonies, how did they recreate a sense of belonging and way of life reminiscent of their past, recomposing their memories into a new cultural fabric?
