Victoria Smalls of the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor shows a colorized 19th-century photo of enslaved people in front of a building used for worship services. Plantation owners would not allow churches on their properties fearing the enslaved would become organized. Smalls was the keynote speaker during Sunday’s Pray-Sing-Shout: The History of the Prayer and Prays House in the Gullah Geechee Community presentation at The Learning Center on 913 West Street.
