Synopsis: A historical analysis of the Gullahs of South Carolina, and an imaginative and suggestive treatment of slave religion and social cohesion, "A Peculiar People": Slave Religion and Community-Culture Among The Gullahs examines the components that provided the Sea Island slave population with their cultural autonomy and sense of consciousness. The elements of community, religion, and resistance are examined in relationship to this unique people. Combining anthropological and historical studies with observations, reports, manuscripts, and letters relating to the Gullahs, the book creates an exceptional and fascinating analysis of Gullah culture in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
