Much like the people of the gullah culture, we're more than traditions and a language. It's about our faith, the spirit of overcoming, persevering, preserving and valuing who we are as people of african descent. That is so very important.
Minnie Clancey's faith to step out and purchase this home at the age of 19 shows she knew and accepted that freedom was a God given right. As well as land ownership and the development thereof.
The cottage stayed in the family passing on to Minnie's niece, Lulu in 1956. Lulu was taken in and raised by Minnie as her own daughter. I believe Minnie understood that a good man leaves an inheritance for his children's children. Leaving something for the betterment of the next generation.
