Buried deep within the American tale lies the story of Gullah. A vivid and fertile culture where the sounds of Michael Row the Boat Ashore flowed through the salty air, and clever little Br'er Rabbit taught the world brains are as good as might. The roots of these mysterious, pleasant pieces of folklore can be traced back in time to a place where traditions thrived, family flourished in a unique new setting and hardships transformed into strengths of community. Now, the Children's Museum of Houston is reviving the arts and practices of the Gullah people in a reinvented, powerful exhibit, called Cum Yah Gullah. This exhibit aims to preserve and provide cultural understanding of Gullah traditions, explore the geography and ecosystems of the Sea Islands and develop an appreciation for one's own culture and history.
