General Info
The Kunda is located on lands where the very brutal rice, cotton, and indigo producing "Retreat Plantation" once stood. This is where we suffered, died, resisted and held on for this day. This is sacred land, the spiritual center for Africans in America - a place for all to come for Empowerment, and Liberation. Geechee refers to the African based culture that is deeply entrenched here in Coastal Georgia, and the people who live here.

Kunda is SARAKOLE' - meaning "compound" and "home of hope."

Geechee Kunda is one of the most impactful and meaningful cultural education facilities to be found anywhere, a true lifetime experience. Geechee Kunda is our way of dispelling the non-sense that ours is a dying, faltering culture, and to help insure that instead of being written out of history, be included in a true light. Included here are exhibit galleries, a gift shop, a family research center, and most importantly, an ongoing research and documentation effort.

Geechee Kunda was created as our means of contributing to efforts to preserve and perpetuate the knowledge of important elements of African Culture that exists in the United States. We are also interested in assisting in nurturing and perpetuating threatened cultural traditions elsewhere in the Americas and Africa itself.
We use culture as a vehicle for Mental Empowerment, Intellectual Liberation, and Spiritual Healing. Our programs and activities are offered in that spirit. Some, because they present mental or physical challenges, are aimed at imbuing participants with greater self-esteem and confidence. Some seek to equip participants with traditional skills that can be used to establish cottage industries, thereby gaining a measure of self-sufficiency. Others are intended to enhance ones’ understanding and appreciation of the global experience of African people, a necessary step in forming meaningful alliances.

Still others are intended to assist participants in realizing full potential, in hope that they will be inspired to return to their home communities and contribute to their cultural and social.

Permanent and rotating exhibits as well as year-round activities that include classes, workshops, demonstrations and lectures covering a broad spectrum of tradition and innovative arts, crafts and information. The centers performance arts series, in which numerous Geechee Kunda performers participate, is exceedingly popular.
“Kunda” is Sarakole’ – meaning, “compound” and “home of hope.” Geechee Kunda is located on lands where the very brutal rice, cotton and indigo producing “Retreat Plantation” once stood. It is where slaves suffered, died and resisted. Now, this is a place where the African traditions of those people are kept alive and celebrated.
