Geechee Literature Series

I packaged my books as “Geechee Literature Series” to affirm the term as viable and not an oxymoron. In years past, the expressions “Geechee” and “Gullah” were considered as insulting and as a speech way that should be corrected. Under no terms, it was believed, should it qualify as literature. Literature, however, is defined by Britannica as “a body of imaginative works of poetry and prose distinguished by the intentions of their authors and the perceived aesthetic excellence of their execution.”  Literature produces a pleasing or enriching effect and expresses a worldview.
