In this paper presentation, the authors explore the history of the Gullah people of the Sea Islands of South Carolina. Oral storytelling is an integral aspect of African American traditions, therefore the authors will share several stories gathered during the research process and these stories will illuminate the histories of these unique Americans. In examining the history of oppression and isolation of Black Americans of Gullah descent, the authors look at how a history of racism and inequity set the stage for the digital inequities that Gullah communities have experienced since the onset of the information age. The presenters find that despite the Gullahs’ tenacious struggles for education and literary during enslavement, many were left behind in this age of digital technology.
