Alma Washington, 76, sews a traditional Gullah Geechee sweetgrass basket near her home in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. The Gullah Geechee people are the descendants of West and Central Africans who were enslaved and bought to the lower Atlantic states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and Georgia to work on the coastal rice, Sea Island cotton and indigo plantations. The Gullah Geechee are believed to be one of the most authentic African American communities in the United States.
