Three proposals for preserving the sea island culture of slave descendants along the Southeast coast are being considered.
The Gullah-Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission unveiled three alternatives Thursday.
One is to take no action while a second stresses archiving the history of the culture. The third proposes enhancing economic opportunities, protecting natural resources, and preserving traditional skills.
Planners are taking comments through the end of October.
The proposals were developed after 21 public meetings in the Carolinas, Georgia and Florida, the four states making up the corridor.
