Community gathers for Yamassee Gullah Festival

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Several families attended the first Yamassee Gullah Festival in L. Scott Stell Park in Savannah. 

The free festival consisted of singing, poetry, dancing, and even a drumming session. Organizers say their goal was to create a viable cultural movement and educational system for the community.

"In our community we must get back to unity and it's a declaration of what we call the concious community, the grass roots organizations in a unified effort," said Ras Lazarus Nazari Imoye Ali, Minister of Education. "So, that would be the pledge spread throughout the city of Savannah that we need to unite and come back together in peace and that we could solve some of the problems of our community."
