There’s an invaluable wisdom in the stories spoken in other languages of other cultures. Here, Carolyn “Jubulile” White recounts her upbringing in the Sea Islands off the shore of South Carolina and her school years in Charleston. As a storyteller, she stresses the importance of speaking in her native Gullah tongue without shame for its past consideration as “improper” English, “Everyone should be proud of a history, their history, their culture. Everyone else, you know, wanted to be known. So, why not us?”
