ACHG Superstars is teaming up The Gullah/Geechee Angel Network to present The 60s: The Music and the Movement!

For those of you not familiar with these incredible organizations, let me give you the 411!

The Gullah/Geechee Angel Network is a 501c nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve, protect and promote the cultural heritage of the Gullah Geechee people who have lived in the southeastern portion of the United States of America from North Carolina to Jacksonville Florida 30 miles inland (known as the "Low Country") for over 300 years; as well as to connect all people, not just in the 50 states, but internationally throughout the Diaspora, Europe, Caribbean and Africa.

They also have “Goals and Objectives” which are achieved by the implementation of a seven (7) point program: 1) The Performing Arts, 2) Arts and Crafts, 3) Educational, 4) Scholarships and Awards, 5) The Internet and The Media, 6) Production, Preservation and Documentation and last but not least 7) Health and Nutrition Awareness.

The Gullah/Geechee Angel Network’s purpose for this fundraiser is to build education centers to empower our at-risk youths.

Hosting this powerful event is ACHG Superstars, who are all over the low country with their cameras spot lighting and talking about our schools, laws, government, church, events, and positive entertainment of all kinds!
